Camp shows sight-impaired kids a good time

Quinton Jones was all smiles after catching his second bluegill in a matter of minutes as his fishing partner Gary Turner looks on. The pair were part of a group of people from the Hilton Head Plantation Fishing Club and children from Camp Leo who were taking part in a fishing lesson at Hilton Head Plantation. Camp Leo is a week-long event for the blind and includes a variety of activities for campers to enjoy.
