A nostalgic night of classic camp experiences and the best local brews benefiting Camp Encourage.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2021

6:00 to 10:00pm

Support local, quality recreational services for youth with autism in our region at our annual camp-themed benefit.

The Lodge at Ironwoods

14701 Mission Rd, Leawood, KS 66224

We look forward to welcoming you once again to S’Mores & Pours, as we celebrate all that is good about camp and of course, our campers! We plan to welcome you to “camp” with cocktails, local pours from Cinder Block Brewery, a cozy campfire, music, and a wonderful array of auction items. We will come together for a fantastic camp-style meal followed by a heartwarming presentation. A live auction and s'mores- inspired dessert will cap off the night as we toast the sweet support that helps Camp Encourage continue its mission.

Increased safety measures (see details below)

Our safety is not just focused on our campers. We also want to ensure safety during our events. Because of this and in addition to masking, distancing, and disinfecting, upon entry to S’Mores and Pours, each individual will be asked to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 (PCR) test within 72 hours of arrival. This can be accomplished by presenting a physical or digital copy along with a photo ID.

2021 EVENT CHAIRS

Dr. Micah and Schylon Kubic

Dr. Micah and Schylon Kubic are honored to serve as this year’s S'Mores and Pours Co-Chairs. The Kubics are deeply committed to expanding opportunity and access, especially for people with ASD and communities of color. Schylon is a strategic communications professional with a local public relations firm that specializes in strategic communications. Micah is the executive director of the ACLU of Florida. Micah and Schylon are proud parents of Garrett Henry, who has loved going to Camp Encourage since he was 8 years old. They love learning from and laughing with Garrett every day. The Kubics are proud to support Camp Encourage because they have seen first-hand the confidence, camaraderie, self-esteem, independence, and abilities that it has instilled in Garett and other children with ASD, all while having lots of fun. Camp Encourage is more than a place; it’s a part of their village. 

Garrett Henry

Garrett is 17 years old and is a senior this year at Park Hill South High School where he excels in math and science courses. He lives with his mom and stepfather and enjoys spending time with his dad and three older brothers. Garrett has attended Camp Encourage for seven years. His favorite camp activities include zip-lining, horseback riding, swimming, and the end of camp carnival. He enjoys meeting fellow campers and encouraging them to try new things. Most of all, he loves being surrounded by counselors who create a safe space for him to be his authentic and unique self.
