The Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children offers a variety of engaging activities both on and off-site, weather permitting. Our own mini-bus and van provide transportation. While the campers enjoy many recreational adventures to places like Morey’s Pier, boat rides and the Cape May County Zoo and Park, they are also exposed to community living through experiences such as dining at local restaurants and ice cream parlors, cultural events at Veterans Plaza and the Bay Atlantic Symphony concerts, lending audio books from the library and events at the Avalon Community Hall.
