Camps for Kids- Camp Encourage 2014



We cannot think of a better way to kick off Autism Awareness Month than to share that we have once again been chosen as the recipient of a matching grant from Camps For Kids. So eager were we — in fact — to share the news, that we hit the “send” button a little too soon on the previous email. 


SO, let’s try this again! Beginning today, every donation made for camper scholarships on behalf of Camp Encourage will be DOUBLED by Camps For Kids (up to $1500 per donor). With a goal of providing over $50,000 in scholarship funds this summer, that means that every dollar donated during this campaign will have doublethe impact on our campers!

To DOUBLE your donation today, visit:
OR, send a check with “Camp Encourage” in the memo to:
Camps For Kids
4727 Logan Ave
Kansas City, MO 64136
Our apologies for overloading your inboxes, and our thanks for your grace as we continue to adjust to two staff members!
Sheepishly yours,
Kelly and Alissa

Encouraging Reagan is available to view!

Prepare your heart for a remarkably touching tale of a local (amazing, sweet, and sharp!) young boy as he and his family share their daily experiences and reflections after attending Camp Encourage for the first time. 


Initially released at the Camp Encourage 2013 Movie Benefit and created by local filmmaker Brandon Parigo of Wirken Film, Encouraging Reagan is a lovely short documentary that will brighten your day and feed your soul. As of today and in honor of

Autism Awareness Month, you can view the film free on our website.Donations in support of our mission are encouraged and will be doubled through July 31st. Grab a tissue and enjoy!

Adults, You’re Invited to CAMP GROWN UP!

To support Camp Encourage, a group of friends and neighbors of our Executive Director, Kelly Lee have planned and cordially invite you to attend “CAMP GROWN UP” on this Saturday, April 5th

They share: “Let us feed your summer camp nostalgia with flame-kissed hotdogs, s’mores and live music (no square dancing required). Bring your instrument for a jam around the campfire, your game face for some friendly outdoor competition, and your allowance money for a 50/50 raffle.”
It promises to be an enjoyable evening for adults (over the age of 21) and we hope that you’ll join the jamboree! To get your tickets and for further details, visit the EVENT PAGE.
