A MESSAGE FROM CRAIG L. ADAMS Dear Friends, It is my sincere pleasure to inform Camphill Special School’s hundreds of supporters that thanks to your generosity of heart and enduring confidence in our mission, 2009– 2010 was the most successful fundraising period in our nearly fifty-year history. Amidst continued economic uncertainty our family members and friends truly “stepped up to the plate” to help us exceed our Annual Village Fund goal and move us very close to achieving our largest capital campaign goal ever. I cannot adequately express my appreciation for these sustained and tangible expressions of love for Camphill Special School. Thank you. This year I also wish to thank you all for the honor of having led the School’s Board of Directors for the past six years. It has been both a privilege and a joy to lead a Board that has recognized and met the myriad challenges that are part of not only preserving the School, but also of helping it to strengthen and grow. Our recent accreditations by AWSNA and Middle States, our Sharing Life and Learning campaign to expand the Transition Program, and the continued success of our School of Curative Education and Social Therapy in training the future teachers and leaders of the Camphill Movement all are key examples of the School’s success. Camphill Special School is a place that nurtures and enriches my heart and spirit. Thank you for making it a part of your lives as well. Craig L. Adams Retiring President Board of Directors Craig will continue to serve our School as a member of the Board of Directors.
Guy Alma, Director of Development, presents Craig Adams with a gift from the School in recognition of Craig’s six years of service as President of our Board of Directors. “Craig’s tenure,” said Guy, “demonstrated the true meaning of leadership. Always a steady influence with an eye for the essential, Craig continually asked us to push towards a future that we determined for ourselves. We have learned to look ahead and chart our own course with resolve. Camphill Special School simply would not be the place it is today without having had Craig at the helm.”

EigHth Grade Gradua A Poignant Rite of pass By Florie Seery, 8TH GRADER AlAsdair’s Mother / Photography By AlAsdAir’s Father, Marc Bryan-BRown
Because Camphill Special School is a Waldorf school, fully accredited by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America, we believe that a child’s inner need for security is best met when a single teacher (with many helpers along the way!) accompanies the child through all eight grades of elementary school. This means that leaving eighth grade and entering high school truly is a tender—but highly exciting—transition.

that family,” Greg Ambrose shares. “It is natural for us to do whatever we can to help.” In May 2007 Greg and Annie Ambrose attended the Camphill ProAm Tennis Ball for the first time. When I met them at the event I knew they would be great committee members—and they were, for our ProAm 2008! They became Tennis Ball Chairs in 2009 and again in 2010. Under their leadership Camphill ProAm 2010 was the most successful in our history, raising more than $152,000. “Over the years our friends and family have become involved in the ProAm,” says Annie. “They love helping Joey’s school as much as we do.”
Greg and Annie Ambrose with their children, Becky and Joey. Greg and Annie chaired this year’s record-setting ProAm Tennis Ball that raised over $152,000 for Camphill Special School.
“Camphill’s philosophy of everyone in the community contributing to the best of their ability has really hit home for us. Why shouldn’t parents of students live by that philosophy, too?” Greg wonders. “Donating money is great, but the School needs more people’s time, too.” Recently Greg became even more deeply involved with the School as a member of the Board of Directors and Chair of the Board’s strategic planning committee. For Greg and Annie volunteering always is about how they can make a difference to the school that has embraced their son and their family. “We simply are paying it forward,” says Annie.

Plein Air at Beaver Farm Proclaiming that “when artists come together with
love anything is possible,” over forty renowned artists descended on Beaver Farm to take part in the first-ever Plein Air at Beaver Farm in August. Organized by Nancy Bea Miller, artist and parent of tenth grader Henry, participants garnered inspiration from the unparalleled landscape and farm buildings, creating one-of-a-kind works of art that were sold at an exhibit and reception at The Rosenfeld Gallery in Old City Philadelphia on November 3, 2009. A portion of the sales benefited the Sharing Life and Learning capital campaign.

Teaching barefoot while sitting on the floor is not the way faculty members of the Camphill School of Curative Education and Social Therapy typically give lectures. During Spring Break, however, Jan Goeschel and I kicked off our shoes and did just that. It might not be quite the custom in the West, but it is entirely in keeping with Thai culture. In Bangkok we lectured at Chulalongkorn University and presented a five-day workshop for teachers from Thailand and Singapore. Nor is conversing with staff in a thatched-roof and open-sided palapa while keeping an eye on the surrounding jungle the usual setting for a consultation.

Our School Awarded two full accreditations In 2009–2010 Camphill Special School was awarded a full seven-year term of accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools. As the only Waldorf school in North America for children and youth with special needs, our School also earned the same term of full accreditation from The Association of Waldorf Schools of North America. Members of both accreditation teams met with and interviewed representatives of all the School’s stakeholders, including teachers, students, parents, and administrators, as well as representatives of the Board of Directors. Team members also toured the School’s facilities, studied the School’s plan for school improvement and other
documents related to the School’s work, and observed teaching and learning in classrooms. To be accredited, a school must meet standards in each major area of its work and activity. These areas include the school’s philosophy, mission, objectives, governance and leadership, organizational design and staff, educational programs, learning media services and technology, student services, student life and activities, facilities, health and safety, finances, assessment of student learning, and strategic planning. Camphill Special School also is licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as an Approved Private School.

We close our annual report with a thoughtful and sensitive piece by Henry Swain, the eleven-year-old brother of Robert â€œBarâ€? Swain. Bar attended Camphill Special School for nine years and is a graduate of our Transition Program. His parents, Bob and Ginny Swain, have established High Spirit Community Farm in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, as a life-sharing community for Bar and other adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Bar also has a younger sister, Molly, a student at Boston University.
My Brother By Henry Swain
My brother is so very fun when we all go swimming Swimming, splashing, playing.
To create a place for him, and friends, Who had no place to go.
Other times it can be hard to live with him. He does not sleep well and he makes a great big mess.
He now works all day with a big green wheelbarrow.
He has moved from school to school, looking for a perfect match.
With a life and body like his
He found one called Beaver Run where others were like him
And I hope he has a very long time to live.
And he liked it a lot with a hand and a heart. He gave us all his love. We all felt it in one special part.
He is like the sun at timesâ€”happy and bright as can be
He did well, and worked all day in the barn,
He values most women, and pushes away the men.
Where horses, goats and chickens were abundant. From time to time he would come home for a week,
He has worked so very hard to live And I praise him now
And when he is not, that is OK with me.
When he hears the name Caroline, or Marsie, he shouts and smiles with glee.
And we were all exhausted.
His feet may be small, and his hair a big mess
But he was fine, and that was good, until he finally graduated.
But when it comes to him, I just smile and say,
We could not keep him at home forever,
That he is my brother and I love him lots,
But there was no place for him to go.
For the things he has done and the things he has not.
My parents and others had come together
