Highbrook Lodge

Providing a quality camp experience for children and adults with vision loss and blindness for over 90 years.


The last few years have been very challenging as we all navigated the pandemic. This has been especially true for Highbrook Lodge. Unfortunately, we had to close Highbrook for the 2020 and 2021 seasons and instead expanded our offerings of virtual and in-person recreational programs. While we opened camp for the 2022 season and worked to get back to more traditional camp programming, we faced significant obstacles and challenges. Now we need to take some time to determine how best to move forward.  
Therefore, Highbrook Lodge will not open for the 2023 season. Rather, we are taking this time to study the situation, speak with our stakeholders and determine the best path forward with the interests of our clients front of mind.  
The difficult decision to not open in 2023 is disappointing for us and everyone who cherishes the friendships and memories made at Highbrook over the years. It is our commitment to providing safe and high-quality programming for our clients that drives this decision.

In the interim we are excited to expand our recreational programs and offer additional fun and engaging opportunities – both in University Circle and elsewhere in the community – in the months ahead.  We will update this page with details as they are announced.

In the meantime, please consider joining us for our Leisure & Lifestyle programming, offered virtually and in-person. Click here for details.
We thank you for your understanding and your support of Cleveland Sight Center, our programs and our clients. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@clevelandsightcenter.org.

Welcome to Highbrook Lodge—where we see camp differently!

Highbrook LodgeThousands of children, families and adults have walked the trails of Highbrook Lodge over the past 90+ years. They’ve witnessed how the spirit of camp—embodied by our campers, staff, and friends—makes Highbrook Lodge one of the best places on earth. In fact, most of our campers return summer after summer, calling Highbrook Lodge their home away from home!Image of two camp counselors smiling for the camera

“Because coming back to Highbrook is like coming home.” –A camper of over 30 years

All of our campers, aged 0-99, are individuals living with low vision or blindness. We offer them a safe, well supervised, and supportive environment where everyone is accepted and friendships can flourish. We believe that summer camps provide a unique environment that promotes lasting positive effects for the lives of our campers, including the space to:

  • Make and maintain friendships
  • Relax and play
  • Develop further independence
  • Be outdoors and unplugged
