Camp director Colleen McCarthy, left, who is legally blind since birth, helps Sarah Hardwig, 7, feel the difference between different beads as they make a beaded bracelet during the Lighthouse of Collier summer camp Wednesday at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Hardwig has Leber's Congenital Amaurosis (LCA), a genetic disorder that causes her to be blind. The Lighthouse of Collier, a center for blindness and vision loss, was this year's beneficiary of money from the Great Dock Canoe Race which enabled the organization to create the first summer camp for children who are blind and visually impaired until July 29. For more information on the summer camp call 239-430-3934. Lexey Swall/Staff
