It is with mixed emotions that we share the news that we will not be holding the Camphill Challenge this year.
Although participants and sponsors had a wonderful experience with the event – especially our teams representing Kimberton Hills, Camphill Soltane and Camphill Special School -- we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Camphill Challenge.
The three communities took an honest look at the time and energy output vs. the financial gain and it was apparent that this event is not the best use of our time and resources. We are thankful for those who worked along with us and helped with the event for the last seven years, most especially the founders of the event from Camphill Special School.
It was wonderful to come together as one group representing Camphill communities in Chester County. Although the decision to cancel the event was hard to make, we feel it was the smartest choice for already stretched development staffs and volunteers. We strive to be careful stewards of the gifts that are given to us and want our supporters to know that.
We are grateful that you chose to support us and the Camphill Challenge. We celebrate the triumphs of our participants and the enthusiasm of our supporters! Thank you for the many ways in which you inspire us to continue to build healthy and happy lives for those who live and work in our communities.
With our gratitude,

Our 7th annual Camphill Challenge bike ride was once again blessed with incredible weather, dedicated volunteers, and inspired cyclists. Funds raised by the event make a huge difference in the lives of children, youth, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities at Camphill Special School, Camphill Soltane, and Camphill Village Kimberton Hills.
