Holiday Words of Wisdom: Helen Keller.

'Tis the Season of Giving to the Eric 'RicStar' Winter Music Therapy Camp

As you plan year-end giving, please consider a gift to the Eric 'RicStar' Winter Music Therapy Camp, aka RicStar's Camp.

This yearly, award-winning music-therapy camp, now in its 14th year, welcomes individuals of all ages and disabilities into a summer-camp setting focused on nurturing and celebrating individual abilities.

Everyone is equal there.

No one is turned away from RicStar's Camp because of disability or financial need. Many campers could not attend this amazing event were it not for the scholarships we provide because of your generous support. 

Many campers return year after year, calling it the highlight of their year.

RicStar's Camp and music therapy change lives.

Please help us do that again for this too-often underserved and undervalued population in 2016.

From the bottom of our music-loving, ability focused hearts, thank you.

Find out more here. Watch the great camp videos, too.
