Submitted

This year the Annapolis Valley Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia was the very fortunate recipient of the Retired Teachers Organization (RTO) Legacy Foundation Award for 2017.

The RTO Legacy Foundation was established in 1994 with the intent of supporting sick and/or challenged children in the province of Nova Scotia. This year’s RTO Legacy Foundation funds went directly toward supporting Camp Spectrum, the Annapolis Valley chapter of Autism Nova Scotia‚Äôs summer day camp for children and youth with autism. Camp Spectrum is unique in the Valley community, providing adapted programming and one-on-one support for each and every camper. The camp is in its eighth year and runs over seven weeks in four different locations throughout the Annapolis Valley.
