In partnership with the University of Tennessee, the foundation has supported the operation of Camp Koinonia for the past 32 years. Camp Koinonia is an outdoor education/camp program for children ages 7-21 who have multiple disabilities. The program was developed in 1977 at Virginia Tech and is now part of a service-learning class at UT with the primary purpose of providing a meaningful, experiential learning opportunity for university students while involving children and young adults, some with severe disabilities, in outdoor activities that they would not be able to do otherwise. The camp program is offered through the Therapeutic Recreation concentration at The University of Tennessee.
As the Koinonia Foundation seeks to expand its reach, a strategic plan is underway which includes identifying and responding to community needs and opportunities gaps for children and adults with multiple disabilities. New monthly programs are being introduced including game night, dance night and movie night as part of the culmination of the strategic planning process and the next phase of organizational growth. Ultimately, these newly developed programs seek to enhance the quality of life for children and adults with multiple disabilities and their families.
