From the Executive Director:


Dear Kishwaukee SRA Participants, Families and Friends;

KSRA staff are working with MorningStar Media Group in Sycamore who created our first website, to refresh our online look! Is there something on our website that does not work for you? Something that just isn’t helpful? Is there something amazing we should not change? We appreciate any input our families and participants may have. You can send your thoughts to Dawn at, or call to the office to share your thoughts.

Another way to stay in touch with KSRA is through our many social media platforms. We are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to follow us as we post a lot of information about our upcoming programs on those sites. We also use our social media to highlight our special events and share information that can support and/or positively our families and participants. We try to find fun, positive, uplifting messages to share – things that will make you smile :) Please follow us on these platforms so you can stay informed, maybe even see yourself and smile.

KSRA’s Golf Outing is scheduled for Friday, May 21. More information will be coming soon, but we just wanted to be sure that every knew of this new event. We will also have a raffle with some amazing items. KSRA is looking to offer items from local people and places to raise awareness and support for our Golf Outing, and in turn supporting those in our local community. Do you have some amazing items to donate? Please consider donating them for this event! We know that we have many families and friends who have a talent, hidden or not, and we would love to celebrate the talent while benefiting KSRA. Please spread the word – call your friends and family, and let’s make our first golf outing amazing! This event should be a great way to start the May weekend!

We know this has been a tough year for many. KSRA continues to push forward to safely provide the programs and services we can. Last summer we had Camp Maple Leaf and Camp Adventure, we plan on offering both programs again this summer. We also hope to bring back a number of our other summer programs. As families may have been financially affected by this past year, having a scholarship fund available for those that need and benefit from our programs will be important. Please consider supporting the KSRA Scholarship fund if you are able.

I hope you come Play, Laugh, Learn and Grow with us this year!
