8th Annual Taster's Fest a success!
The 8th Annual Taster's Fest, Anderson Wood's biggest yearly fundraiser, was held Saturday, September 27, 2014 at the Riverwalk in Jasper, IN. Guests enjoyed live music, wine tasting from area wineries, delicious food samples from local restaurants, and a silent auction. More than $14,000 was raised, 100 percent of which directly benefits Anderson Woods Summer Camp. Thank you to all of our generous sponsors, all those who worked hard to mark this event possible, and all those who showed their support to Anderson Woods by your attendance. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
About Anderson Woods
Nestled along its namesake, the Anderson River in rural Southern Indiana, Anderson Woods was founded in 1978, and is a private, not-for-profit corporation chartered to provide summer camp experiences, as well as other services, for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The founders of Anderson Woods, Judy and David Colby, shared a vision of providing an experience that would foster self-esteem and empower these Special Ones to fulfill the potential within. From 3 campers sleeping in tents the first summer, our camp, which spans 175 acres in Perry County, now welcomes hundreds of campers of all ages and disabilities who sleep in four cabins each summer. Our aim is to provide self-confidence, dignity, and choices to persons with disabilities who, too often, are given none. It is with much humility and hope that we walk forward to serve these Special Ones.
A Special Place For Special People
It is our mission at Anderson Woods to provide summer camp and safe, dignified services for persons with mental and/or physical disabilities.
Our goal is to teach individuals (to the maximum extent possible) to be fully functioning members of the local community.
