About Aaron’s Acres
“Sending a child with special needs to a camp program is not easy. The parents and the child face challenges and concerns throughout the process. For a child who has medical needs, the parent must make sure that a nurse is available. For a child who has behavioral issues, the parent must make sure that the staff is trained appropriately and is able to follow required reinforcement schedules (which might be needed every 5 minutes!). Consistency and schedule-oriented sessions are essential for many children who have developmental disabilities.
For the child who has physical and motor difficulties, the staff needs to be trained and knowledgeable in lifting the child, transporting the child and making sure that at all times, the child is comfortable and safe. Who could have known when we first began in 1998 with 11 children and 1 week of camp in Lancaster that it would turn into what it is today! So, one may ask, what is Aaron’s Acres all about and why is it so special? Aaron’s Acres is about connecting with children of all different abilities and their families. Aaron’s Acres focuses on the entire family throughout the year that we provide various programs and activities to all of the members of the families. Aaron’s Acres is about partnering with people of all ages and experiences. Come and join the Aaron’s Acres family in a way that is meaningful to you. I look forward to having you become a part of the Aaron’s Acres experience!”

About Music For Everyone
Music For Everyone is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to raising the awareness and resources to strengthen the role that music plays in our schools and communities.Since 2006, MFE has awarded well over $1.0 million in grants, scholarships and direct program support to schools and community arts groups in Lancaster County.
Here’s why we exist:
Music is important to our community.
Research shows that music education helps create strong schools and vibrant communities.
Music programs are in financial trouble.
Despite overwhelming evidence of their value, funding for music programs is being slashed.
Music for Everyone is doing something to help.
Our mission is to cultivate the power of music for education and community building.
Our strategy employs three steps:
1. Consult with education and community leaders to identify and assess needs of school and community based music programs,
2. Raise community awareness of those needs and resources to address them,
3. Strategically invest those resources to effectively and efficiently address those needs.
