Curricula for three chemistry camp experiences for blind and visually impaired (BVI) individuals that incorporated single- and multiday activities and experiments accessible to BVI students are described. Feedback on the camps from students, mentors, and instructors indicates that these events allowed BVI students, who in many cases have been discouraged from doing science, to understand that chemistry can be made accessible and that they can think about chemistry on a level comparable to their sighted peers.
