Yearly Programs

Step Up for Down Syndrome

Step Up for Down Syndrome is our yearly family picnic. This is a time for 300 to 500 people to come together in community and to celebrate the fact that Down Syndrome Awareness has affected so many of us in a positive way! We have nonprofits at our Resource Fair where parents can gather information from pertinent nonprofits that could help their family in many ways. We have a one-mile walk where all participants are celebrated. The highlight of day is our Talent Show!

Family Camp at Westminster Woods

Family Camp at Westminster Woods is our annual day in the woods. We have a new theme each year and activities are always full of fun! Families look forward to a low-ropes course, music, art, swimming, and a delicious lunch.

Christmas Party

DSANB holds a Christmas Party at the Union Hotel, Occidental. In preparation for this meal we put together 50 bags for the homeless. Service is an integral part of what we do as a nonprofit… Our families can come together and give back to community in many ways.
