Pediatric Therapy Network

“Pediatric Therapy Network is so grateful for the generous support of our Las Candalistas friends. Your sponsorship of Camp Escapades enables special needs children to experience a typical day camp with arts and crafts, dance, cooking, water play and other traditional camp activities. It also helps to defray the cost of the highly skilled professionals required to meet the needs of campers with moderate to severe challenges. Because the cost of hosting this event far exceeds the fee charged to families, PTN must rely on grants and donations to cover the shortfall and keep Camp Escapades affordable for our children. Thank you, Las Candalistas, for supporting PTN in such a caring and compassionate way!”

— Terri Nishimura, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (November, 2014)
