Camp Via Has Another Successful Summer

This year, 40 students participated in Camp Via. Campers had fun while working on their personal goals by engaging in a number of activities and field trips.

The students visited the DaVinci Center and Imagi Nation to learn about science and different jobs in the community. They were active with the St. Luke's Sports Performance team and bounced around at Sky Zone. Campers also learned safety skills, nutrition tips, and how vegetables grow at the St. Luke's Rodale Institute Organic Garden.

Via is grateful to the businesses that support Camp Via. Thank you to St. Luke's University Health Network; Embassy Bank; The Yurconic Agency; Campbell, Rappold & Yurasits LLP; Fidelity Bank; QNB; BSI Corporate Benefits; Hospital Central Services; King, Spry, Herman, Freund & Faul, LLC; Truist; and UGI.

We depend upon our community partners to provide funding so that our campers have the best possible summer. Please consider joining them by sponsoring Camp Via 2024. To learn more, please contact Michele Grasso, Vice President of Development and Communications at [email protected].

Your Support Helps Peter Thrive

Peter has Down syndrome and participates in Via's Community Connections program.

He volunteers at Meals on Wheels and enjoys interacting with his peers and Meals on Wheels clients. Peter also works on his personal goals including making informed choices and being safe when he is out in the community.

"My husband and I are truly grateful for all the wonderful staff at Via who give our son Peter so much joy," Peter's mom, Kim, says.

Your support helps Peter, and hundreds of others with disabilities, reach their full potential. Donations of any size are welcome. Please donate today.

Summer Field Day Fun

The summer weather was perfect for our most recent participant Field Day.

Everyone enjoyed a few hours outside during a get-together hosted by Community Connections. They had a choice to play carnival games to win gift cards, make cotton candy, or just hang out with each other.
