2022 WSBVI Summer School

Update June 27, 2022

We are sorry to announce that our “A Day in the Life” 2022 summer school program is canceled. We did not receive enough interest in time to be able to justify running the program. We hope to bring this wonderful event to life next year. We apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused.

The Wisconsin Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is still hosting the “Employability” and “Build It” youth programs as well as the adult summer program.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out by emailing  or contacting the WCBVI Center Director Dan Wenzel if you have any questions.

The Wisconsin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired is excited to announce that we are offering in person summer school programs*! These week-long residential experience includes classes focusing on the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) at the school during the day with fun activities in the dormitories in the evening.

Build It – July 17-22

Students can expect to build friendships, life sized forts, towers, and birdfeeders. They will learn some helpful self care skills in addition to building maps, going on scavenger hunts, learn how to cook simple meals, and read ‘Number the Stars’ by Lois Lowery.


Students will arrive between 6-7pm on Sunday evening. The night will commence with dinner and relationship building games as students settle into their dorm rooms.

The program ends Friday afternoon on the 22nd. Families are invited to attend a noon lunch to learn about the week’s festivities, ending with student departures at 1pm.

Registration Due, June 17th, 2022

If registration is complete on time, students will receive a Summer 2022 T-Shirt and a WSBVI swag bag!

If you are interested in this program, please contact us at:  or call 608-758-6110.

 For the health and safety of all students and staff, this event is prepared to pivot to a virtual program if the CDC and other local health authorities advise. 

We have a 4 student minimum and a 12 student maxim for attendance to run this program. Families will be informed about the status of the program by July 1st.
