THE TEAM UP! MISSION:
To enrich, nurture, and strengthen families of children with special needs through our activities, services, and programs.
In 1991, Sue Kinosian of New Berlin Therapies realized her dream of providing a typical day camp experience for the children she was treating, right beside their non-disabled siblings. In an active outdoor environment, those children worked on their therapy goals while doing “regular” camp-type activities. Not many years later, parents of those children came together to form a non-profit group, Team Up! With Families, in order to help organize the camp, lend their creative minds to developing the activities, and assist with fundraising to help support the camp. Soon, Team Up! grew to develop additional programs in order to support and nurture families who have a child with special needs. Families are encouraged and welcomed to join in the fun. It’s a wonderful opportunity to participate in family activities and meet others who have “been there, done that.”
