OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Outlook Enrichment's Teen Recreation program gave teenagers the chance to get up and moving.

At Approach Climbing Gym, teens worked with adaptive sports specialists to learn climbing techniques like scaling the indoor wall from peg to peg.

One participant opened up about what it takes to reach the top.

"I think that there's not that many obstacles that we deal with versus what sighted people would deal with," Maura Loberg said. "I like getting to the top, I like that sense of accomplishment. I feel confident and it's a lot of fun."

Outlook Enrichment's Teen Recreation program gives visually impaired people the chance to stay active through summer camps and recreational adventures.
