About this event

What a unique and challenging 18 months it has been. We have certainly missed our campers and our participants, but this year gave us an opportunity to take a step back and see how we could serve more individuals with disabilities. in our community.

This year, The Koinonia Foundation Gala will celebrate the achievements of the past year, including our newest program, Koinonia Classroom. On October 15th we will gather at Bridgewater Place to hear about the achievements during our inaugural year and celebrate being able to gather together again! We will welcome Amanda Hara from WVLT as our Master of Ceremonies and enjoy an evening of fun, fellowship, fundraising, food and cocktails!

Our in-person programming will resume this Fall with our camp programs leading the way. Camp Koinonia is our week-long residential program for youth ages 7-21 with multiple disabilities. The two weekend camps are: Camp Oginali, which serves individuals with Down Syndrome and Koinonia Retreat, which caters to participants 21 and up who have aged out of the Camp Koinonia age bracket. All three of our overnight camps provide meaningful, experiential learning opportunities for university students and participants, some with severe disabilities, in an outdoor learning environment. The 1:1 camper/counselor ratio is possible through our partnership with The Therapeutic Recreation Program at The University of Tennessee.

Our We Adapt programs continued during COVID, but went virtual. We held craft nights, game nights, adapted exercise classes and more over Zoom. We are thrilled to get back to our in-person We Adapt programs again.

Our newest program, Koinonia Classroom, brings adapted activities to Special Education classrooms. We produce asynchronous video content that teachers can work in to their own curriculum. The Koinonia Foundation provides supply bags for each student so every individual can participate and have everything they need!

We hope to see you on October 15th!

We hope you will take this opportunity into consideration. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jacqui pearl at jpearl@kftn.org, call (865)-888-7365 or visit www.kftn.org.
