The Baker Boy Scout Camp in Florence, Oregon will host the 2009 KindTree Autism Camp and Retreat from Friday, August 21 through Sunday, August 23, 2009.
“The retreat is specifically designed around the needs of those living with Autism/Asperger’s. Autists can bring their families, friends and staff, 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.” Source: KindTree
