After putting on their Make a Difference Run/Walk 5K, Unified Therapy Services was able to raise $11,890. Once expenses were paid, they were able to donate $5,750 to Camp Albrecht Acres. Additionally, they were able to make a large donation to Autism Speaks.
The money will be used to help support scholarships for the Camp Bee-A-Friend program. This donation will allow 23 children to receive scholarships.
Camp Bee-A-Friend offers children on the autism spectrum the opportunity to work on social skills and form friendships with each other and their typically developing peers. The activities offered at this camp are designed to support each camper’s individualized social skills goals. Campers will learn and practice play skills with their typically developing peers while having lots of fun.
All children participating in Camp Bee-A-Friend will have fun playing games, swimming, hiking, fishing, arts and crafts, creative play, low ropes course, and more.
