This is Nico Clemens' summer camp tuition fund. Between Bridge School and Camp Krem we owe $2200.00 in tuition. Thank you for your support.

Nico Clemens, age 9, is a happy and energetic boy who has Autism and Apraxia of speech. He lives in Northern California with his Mom,Dad and sister Natalie(6 years old).

He is lucky enough to attend 2 overnight summer camps in glorious Boulder Creek, California. The Bridge School( founded by Neil Young) hosts a 5 day AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication)camp at the Camp Harmon Easter Seals facility. This will be Nico's 4th year in attendance. He loves going and the staff of counselors, SLP Grad students and Bridge School employees love having Nico as a camper.

Last year we were lucky enough to also find Camp Krem which is coincidently enough also located in Boulder Creek. Camp Krem is an incredible facility dedicated to Developmentally challenged youth and adults.

We signed Nico up for a week long session and he had an amazing time there. As with the Bridge school, Nico also left an imprint on the hearts of the staff there.

Nico looks forward to his summer camp experiences just as much as any child would, if not more so. Seeing his infectious smile and hearing his laugh as we load up the car and head south is priceless.

In the past years we have received funding support from local and state agencies. With budget cuts that are pervasive, we have exhausted our funding sources and are unable to afford the hefty tuition to send Nico to camp this year.

After much thought we have decided to create this website to raise funds so Nico to attend his camps again this summer.

Thank you for visiting our page and the consideration of helping us make wonderful memories for Nico and our family.
