Robert and Benjamin
The idea of camping experiences for adults with disabilities began as a vision of the Miller family, after the passing of our son Robert in the Fall of 2005. Robert was born with severe disabilities, and truly enjoyed the time he spent attending camp as a child and young adult. Since his passing. the Robert V. Miller Fund was established to develop camping experiences and provide resources for adults to participate in camping experiences that provide fun, friends and support. These experiences for the campers also enable parents and caregivers to rest, relax and enjoy some time for themselves knowing that the person they love will be enjoying interaction with others.
To strengthen the family legacy the Fund was renamed in 2012 to the Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund. Benjamin is Robert’s brother and is one of the oldest known living adults with Neonatal Adrenal Leukodystry (NALD). Benjamin currently resides in SouthWest Florida and is a joy to all who come in contact with him. Their light continues to shine!
Robert and Ben had a very special relationship with their Grandpa Miller who was an incredible supporter of the camping program. Mr. Miller, Tom and Fran Miller, and Kathy and Terry Paramore have also been donors and supporters of the Fund since it was established in late 2005 in memory of Robert V. Miller.
Grandpa is greatly missed, but his love, faith, inspiration and generosity will continue to inspire.
