Camphill Soltane - Residential ProgramThe Camphill Soltane community offers a supportive, relationship-rich environment for young adults with developmental disabilities, providing a foundation for their personal growth and sense of self, and for the development of their social and practical capacities. In the Residential Program, students live in one of eight houses in the community, along with long-term, residential volunteers, called coworkers. One or more coworkers in each house are usually designated as householders, with the responsibility to manage the household, and care for the well-being of all house residents. Camphill Soltane households depend upon the contributions of everyone to function fully and effectively. Most responsibilities for running the household are shared among all house members, with each performing tasks according to his or her capacities. Coworkers actively support students’ skill development and maintenance by coaching them in basic household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, room care, and laundry. Students and coworkers help to create households that are peaceful, beautiful, clean, and well-ordered. The therapeutic effects of such an environment are of direct support to people’s well-being. Television sets are noticeably absent, with conversation, reading, and other involvements providing the primary forms of social engagement. Pantries are stocked with healthful foods, mostly unprocessed and much of it organic. Large dining rooms are a focal point in every household, where house members gather for shared meals. Home life centers around relationships, shared agreements that uphold the well-being of each member of the household, and moments throughout each week for house members to gather together for quiet reflection. Weekly household meetings provide forums for discussion of topics that are of direct relevance to house members. Students at Camphill Soltane also benefit from a strong network of peer support from older community residents with disabilities, who make up a smaller proportion of the residents with disabilities in the community. These older people have joined our Community House program in a long-term, residential capacity (enrollments in this program are extremely limited). There are also a number of Day Students who participate in our program, but reside with their parents or other guardians in the local area.ChesterCAMPHILL SOLTANE - Chester; GlenmooreCamphill Soltane

Its goal is to create a buddy system between a PGA professional and a child with disabilities. Its main objective is to establish a meaningful friendship between both parties as the child is learning the fundamentals of golf while elevating the child’s self-esteem. The Golf Buddy Program requires the parent(s) to show a strong commitment to the child’s learning process. Once paired with a PGA Professional, it is the responsibility of the parent to arrange the child’s golf lessons unless the professional expresses that he/she would rather take on this responsibility. The Buddy Program will provide the required golfing equipment. All children and professionals enrolled in the program shall be registered and noted for future mailings and group activities through the offices of the Philadelphia Section of the PGA and Variety – The Children’s Charity.MontgomeryVariety Club Camp and Developmental CenterVariety-The Children's Charity
