The registration fee is $50 per week up until June 1. Then the fee will be $75 per week. We encourage all parents/guardians to speak with the participant's school district to assist in covering registration costs and transportation through the district's ESY program. The participants will need to bring their own lunch. Snacks and drinks will be provided. We will always have food on hand! Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. However, please contact the coordinator to discuss transportation options. We are always here to help.

Our kids always have a great time and learn a lot at our NFB BELL Academy programs. Please contact us with any questions or concerns because we want all children to have a positive Braille learning experience along with a bit of fun!
