BELL Academy

Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning


The National Federation of the Blind of Missouri is very proud to sponsor the Missouri Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning Academy or BELL Academy for short.  The MO BELL Academy is an intensive 2 week, day program that provides children with Braille and nonvisual skills instruction through fun, hands-on learning activities.  In addition to Braille, crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, interact with blind adult mentors, and enjoy field trips. Through these activities and interactions, the children learn that blindness or low vision does not define them or their future.


Come join us for an awesome two weeks filled with learning through games, hands on activities, field trips and building life long friendships.  We will have Braille Twister, treasure hunting, silly stories, tactile art projects, science experiments, the Ninja running line and more!  Your child won't want to miss out on this amazing experience.
