We are happy to announce the Jack Ferrigno Send a Kid to Camp Scholarships are opening on December 1, 2016. Last year, we increased the number of camp scholarships awarded to over 65! As we begin the fifth year of funding camp opportunities for the Boulder and Broomfield county autism community, we must recognize the three people who started it all. Thank you to Brett Smith of the Post Brewing Company, John Ferrigno, and Kelly Straub for their vision of creating the camp scholarship program and their fundraising efforts to sustain it each year. We are honored that they share Jack's memory with us to help other kids like him on their journey with autism.
