Special Needs Admissions

In Kimberton Hills, we believe that each person has his or her own unique destiny. Inspired by the teachings of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, we try to build an environment that supports each person’s individual striving.

Villagers, adults with developmental disabilities living in Camphill Kimberton, have diverse religious backgrounds, range in age from 23 to 90 years and have a wide variety of mental disabilities from birth or due to cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, other genetic syndromes, autism and brain injuries.

An adult age 21 or over, who has been diagnosed with a so-called developmental disability or intellectual disability, can apply to live at Kimberton Hills. We welcome inquiries to discuss our community and encourage those who are interested to come and visit. You are welcome to tour the community, formally, or visit our Café or one of our cultural events. Admissions-focused tours are given once a month, on the first Friday of the month.
