Parkview Services is thrilled to announce the introduction of The Nancy Trenbeth Charitable Endowment for Camp Parkview– a significant and continued financial gift that honors the dedication and contributions of Camp Parkview Co-Director Nancy Trenbeth.
Nancy is an integral part of our residential summer camp for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDDs). Her instrumental work as a founding director 25 years ago, when the program was known as New Horizons, set the stage for a powerful and passionate group of new volunteer leaders. Nancy’s career as an educator of children with IDDs and her experience as the parent of a child with IDDs led her to establish the camp with co-founder and fellow educator John Holliday. Together with a group of amazing supporters, the two created an inclusive experience that is accessible for people of all abilities. Today, the program is as strong as ever, with 40+ volunteer counselors and 60+ campers coming together for a week every summer to create and nurture friendships and experience nature and recreation at the Camp Burton facility, on beautiful Vashon Island.
Camp Parkview would not be possible without Nancy, and she is lovingly woven into its history and future. The establishment of The Nancy Trenbeth Charitable Endowment for Camp Parkview is a testament to the impact that Nancy has on our organization and the amazing people we serve. We are incredibly grateful to the Johnson family for this gift, which will ensure Camp Parkview continues to serve people with IDDs in 2020.
