The Friends & Family Camp is designed around the needs of those living with autism. Parents and caregivers can bring their autistic loved ones and relax with them over the weekend, knowing that they are in a safe and nurturing environment. The retreat is a time for rejuvenation and solidarity. Autists are accepted and enjoyed for themselves, not forced into a procrustean neuro-normal mold.
Volunteering at this event is like being with family. There's plenty of work to do, but there is always someone to chat with and enjoy while you're working. Tasks include plenty of kitchen duty, leading nature walks, helping with games and crafts, keeping a good vibe going, and looking after people. It's a wondeful chance to experience the Autism Community and learn. We need about 70 volunteers for (Thursday) Friday - Sunday the last weekend in August. (August 25-28, 2016) contact hjswaney@gmail.com 

 

KindTree Camp/Retreat, 2010

Our Art Program offers art works created by people who have autism spectrum disorders. We celebrate our artists with a gala opening, giving neuro-normal people a chance to rub elbows with some notable autists, and autists palpable proof of their self-worth and a market for their art.
Volunteers help here by staffing the sales booth during events, helping market items at local stores, coordinating framing and scheduling exhibitions, working with artists and more. Usually in early April.

Join our Board of Directors or Advisory Board. If you are a professional, or have unique skills or resources to offer (autism specialist, business person, grant writer...), we would love your input and creativity in our effort to serve the Autism Community. Board positions are often open. Terms are for 2 years and meetings occur monthly for board members, and twice yearly for the Advisory Board.

In addition, volunteers help at our other events and fun-raisers setting up, working refreshments and more. We could use help with the website and graphic work. We hope to reach out to artists in the schools, with your help. Other opportunities often arise.

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Eileen Brixey, (541) 343-8907 or volunteer@kindtree.org

We know how to have fun.

Thanks.
