The Koinonia Foundation of Tennessee


The Camp Koinonia Foundation of Tennessee was founded in 2001 to promote and support Camp Koinonia and weekend camps offered by The University of Tennessee through the Therapeutic Recreation Program. Since then, The Camp Koinonia Foundation has expanded its focus to broaden the range and scope of programs offered to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We understand that after the age of 21, individuals with disabilities in multiple functional domains have limited recreational program opportunities. It is our job to support lifelong learning by creating meaningful and recreational experiences that enrich our community members’ lives.

Camp Koinonia 2017


Camp Koinonia was held this year from April 2-7 at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center in Crossville, Tennessee. We had another wonderful year and served 132 campers which included 99 returners and 33 newbies! The University of Tennessee staffed the camp with 180 students from their Thursday night “Camp Class.” Thanks to everyone for making this the best week ever!
