The Gift of Charis

From Beth Brown

I'm raising money to send Caleb to his FIRST overnight summer camp for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder & ADHD.

As part of our family journey on learning how to better serve Caleb's brain style I have been thinking about experiences that I want him to have that we have shy-ed away in the past.

Summer camp can provides so many firsts:

  • First time away from family over night
  • First time horse back riding
  • First time kayaking

This has never been a viable option for Caleb, but after doing some searching I found a camp where I feel like he will be able to thrive.

Here is a little more info on camp:

Charis (/ˈkeɪrɪs/; Greek: Χάρις) is a given name derived from a Greek word meaning"grace, kindness, and life" 

Charis Hills is a Christian Summer Camp for kids with learning differences and social difficulties such as ADD, ADHD, High-Functioning Autism, Asperger's disorder, and other special needs.  

Emphasis is placed on teaching about Christ, improving social skills, self esteem and confidence, and helping kids learn, first hand, that their differences are neither uncommon nor debilitating.  By combining recreation with learning, campers are able to have fun while finding success in their daily lives.

Please consider giving, any amount will help be able to give him this opportunity. All donations include a giant hug for those in the DFW area!
