This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. The Kostopulos Dream Foundation provides people of all abilities, from ages four on up, with great educational and recreational opportunities. President and CEO Mircea Divricean shares more.
Camp Kostopulos has been serving people with special needs and all abilities for over 60 years, and has improved countless lives around the world, including our staff, participants, and their families.
Our goal at Camp K is to help increase self-worth and independence through experiences and improvements, with the end game to learn how to make a living.
The experiences can be life changing as Camp K participants learn vocational skills that assist them in getting a job.
That’s important because disability is the No. 1 cause for poverty in the U.S., with only 14 percent of the disabled employed.
We provide a variety of programs and services, year-round, focused on respite for parents and caregivers, infused with educational and recreational experiences.
We take a hands-on approach to teach the art of play and vocational skills, with activities like swimming, riding horses, a ropes course, climbing wall, games, and much more.
Camp K’s impact is huge, providing services to over 4,500 people every year. If you know someone who could benefit, check out Camp K online at campk.org. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
