Enriching the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities in a supportive outdoor atmosphere of acceptance, fun and adventure!

That is Camp Krem's mission. Do it Ourselves is so grateful to be involved with and benefit such a compassionate and amazing organization. For over 50 years Camp Krem has been an innovator in outdoor and alternative programs for people with developmental disabilities.  Since the inception of Do it Ourselves in 2013, we've made a commitment to raising money, resources, awareness and compassion for Camp Krem and their programs. In 2014, the DIO community helped spearhead Camp Krem's music enrichment program, helping to bring music therapists and music programming into Camp Krem's curriculum. In 2016, DIO's total contribution to Camp Krem and its programs (cash, projects, volunteer days, musical donations) reached a new record of over $12,000. 

From the artists who contribute their art and expression for the cause, to the volunteers who help make this beautiful event happen, to all the tireless souls who make Camp Krem what it is, we're all grateful to have each other. We're more ecstatic than ever to where it all leads. Not only does DIO create beauty for all who attend, it also leaves a lasting impact on Camp Krem throughout the year - they're always excited to see the DIO crew return every April!

Come and join us at Do it Ourselves Fest sometime and see what Camp Krem is all about - the beauty of the Santa Cruz, the magic of a place with such deep compassionate roots, and the birthplace of this crazy thing we call do it ourselves.
