Camp Via West

The Heart of Camp (previously called Via Ball) annual fundraiser was such a special and memorable evening. We raised nearly $300,000 at the event, including generous matching funds from the County of Santa Clara.

There were many highlights of the evening, including dancing to the music of the Dick Bright Orchestra and the heartfelt story shared with us by camper Jamieson’s mom, Christine Trefz. Christine reminded the attendees about the importance of Camp Via West: “Jamieson and all the kids that pass through the driveway and walk up to camp do great things, thanks to the people who make this place possible.”

Thank you to everyone who supported Heart of Camp and helping children and adults with developmental disabilities have joyful and meaningful camp experiences, while providing important respite time for families and caregivers. We hope you enjoy the Heart of Camp event photos.
