Camp Parkview is located at the Camp Burton Conference Center on Vashon Island. It has acres of hiking trails, a private waterfront, heated cabins, an arts and crafts facility, a 24 hour nurse's cabin, and a large dining and recreation hall overlooking Puget Sound. Campers make new friends and are reacquainted with old ones as they swim, boat, hike, dance and sing songs around the campfire. Campers must be able to care for their personal needs with minimal assistance and be able to participate in most camp activities. We offer a session for adults with developmental disabilities who are between the ages of 25-59.
About Parkview Services
Parkview Services is a King County based non-profit organization that supports people with developmental disabilities and their families. Parkview was started by Norman and Stella Chivers in 1967 with the purchase of the state's first group home located up on Capitol Hill. It was the Chivers' vision that this home would provide families a community-based alternative to institutionalizing their son or daughter.
Today, over 40-years later, young adults with a developmental disability live at this home and go about their daily lives much the same as anyone else: working, playing, and enjoying friends, family and their neighborhood.
Parkview has a Board of Trustees that is responsible for the direction and leadership of the organization. The Trustees are all volunteers with a mix of family members and other concerned community members.
Today Parkview has five distinct programs: Parkview Group Home, The Affordable Housing Program, Camp Parkview, The Homeownership Program, The Home Maintenance Program, and the Washington Homeownership Center.
