Middle and high school students participating in summer camp at Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired learned about Lions Clubs’ Leader Dogs programs during a presentation on June 15.

Scott Dudley, the District 8-N Leader Dogs chairman, talked about the services and requirements for the programs, of which two are the Leader Dog Summer Experience Camp and Accelerated Orientation and Mobility Training.

The seven-day programs are held at the Leader Dogs facility in Rochester, Michigan. The Summer Experience Camp is for 16- and 17-year-old legally blind adolescents, while the Orientation and Mobility Training is for anyone at least 16 years old, a news release said.

Dudley spoke with students’ parents at a picnic lunch about the Leader Dogs programs and dog guide training. Parents also received information packets about the programs.
