Scholarships Closed for Camp 2017

KindTree’s scholarship committee, composed of community advisors, KT Board members and members of the KT Camp team, has awarded all full and partial scholarships for 2017. KindTree was able to support 15 campers and caregivers attend Autism Rocks! Friends and Family Camp because of generous donations by the community to the Riley Campbell Memorial Scholarship Fund.  KindTree thanks our donors!

Donations received after July 15th will begin to accumulate towards scholarship funds for next year’s awards.  Campers who were awarded scholarships for 2017 will not be eligible for full scholarships in 2018, but may still apply for partial assistance.


The KindTree-Autism Rocks Skills Training for an Independent living Experience program (STiLE), functions as an educational program for adults with autism and others with developmental/intellectual disabilities. Established in 2013 to meet a service gap for adults living with autism in our community, the mission has been to provide skill training to encourage community engagement, independence, productivity, creative expression, health, work readiness and independent living. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities through advocacy, art, education, recreation and community participation.
