OKLAHOMA CITY -

Visually impaired Oklahoma children will get the opportunity to participate in a summer camp specially designed for them in the Oklahoma City metro area.

Hosted by NewView Oklahoma, the Oklahomans Without Limits Camp (OWL) will take place on the OU campus from July 9 to July 13. Several activities are also planned in Oklahoma City on Tuesday and Thursday.

The OWL Camp pairs each visually impaired child with a sighted buddy for the week-long camp, according to officials with the organization. Nearly 70 children from across Oklahoma will take part in this year's arts and museums-themed camp.

Students will work with local artists on a variety of projects, and will visit the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History, Science Museum Oklahoma, the Myriad Botanical Gardens and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

The week-long camp concludes with a talent show on Friday.
