This quarter includes news about a Spring Break cruise, exciting information about an Adoption Museum Project, a call for participants in a study about adoptees and genetic testing (hot topic!), 2018 camp dates and locations, and the quarterly “Why We Dot IT” and “The Camp Impact” columns. This quarter we also talk about the season of giving. Every year HCAF needs to raise roughly $250,000 above and beyond the program fees we charge for camp. That is so we can keep those program fees reasonable for families, provide scholarships for those who need some financial assistance to attend camp, and continue the authentic, meaningful camp experiences we are known for. There are so many ways to give in any amount that works for your family, and we have 10 ways to show you how! Just CLICK HERE for the full newsletter!
Our 2018 camp dates, the date registration opens for other camps, and the locations are now available here! Registration opens in February!
COUNSELORS! Applications for our 2018 camp season will be accepted starting February 15, 2018!

Heritage Camp Voices
Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families, Inc. (HCAF) serves as a post-adoption resource and advocate for children, adults, and families with diverse heritages.
We accomplish our mission by facilitating events which provide culturally relevant and family-centered experiences for every member of the family.
These events provide individuals and families with both a deeper sense of community and an individual identity. It is our goal that all adoptees will develop a knowledge of themselves and their culture of origin and that families will have a better awareness of, and sense of pride in, their adopted family member’s birth heritage. HCAF assists children, adults, and families in becoming a part of a larger community “just like themselves,” with shared experiences, challenges, and opportunities.
