Camp K is Utah’s #1 charity for children and adults with disabilities featuring ropes course, horse riding, swimming, fishing, and summer camps.Since 1967, The Kostopulos Dream Foundation has offered recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.Our longest running program is Summer Camp, where kids, teens, and adults with disabilities or special medical needs experience a 5-day camping adventure. There are 3 types of Summer Camp: Residential, Day, and Trip. Residential and Day Campers go fishing, ride horses, camp out, sing songs, work on arts and crafts projects, challenge themselves on the ropes course, make new friends, and renew old friendships. Residential campers spend 4 nights on our campus, while Day Campers spend the night at their own homes, and return to Camp K each morning. Trip Campers spend 5 days on the road as a participant in the Travel Trip Adventures program. These trips journey to places like Yellowstone, Moab, Bear Lake, or Jackson Hole, and may include adventures such as river running, hiking, viewing wildlife, and visiting attractions.Our Community Based Programs run from September-April. We offer 5-6 activities per week, and our participants are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities as often as possible. Some of the opportunities offered are cooking classes, Jazz Games, Community dances, bowling, holiday parties, and much more. Our Vocational Rehabilitation and Work Experience programs prepare students to successfully transition from high school into the workforce. In Vocational Rehabilitation, they learn the skills and attitudes necessary to apply for and obtain a job. In Work Experience, they apply the skills that they learned, as they work at Camp K during Summer Camp.Our Equestrian Program runs year-round. Our campers experience valuable equine therapy opportunities during both the Summer and Community Based programs. We also offer individual riding lessons for people of all abilities.
The mission of Autism Alliance of Northeastern NY (AANENY) is to enhance the lives of individuals with autism and their families. We serve Clinton, Essex, and Franklin counties. AANENY is primarily supported through local businesses and individual contributions during our annual fundraiser, the Autism Alliance Walk, typically held at Clinton County Fairgrounds located in Plattsburgh, NY.The first Walk was held in 2005 through the commitment of local parents, volunteers, and community businesses. The Walk has been held annually since then. The same small group of volunteers that coordinated the Walk doubled their efforts to ensure that all funds raised would remain in the local community. In 2012, the group received non-profit status under the name Autism Alliance of Northeastern New York.All funds raised at the Autism Alliance Walk remain in our local community. To date, AANENY has granted more than $190,000 to local individuals with autism and agencies that assist them. This includes over 125 iPads and/or electronic communication devices, communication apps, and a multitude of sensory integration and occupational therapy equipment. In addition, we have provided resources and educational support through workshops, conferences, scholarships, and donations of autism-related literature.
Our work is made possible through our generous supporters. Thank you!
