This is our FINAL Cambodian Heritage Camp EVER and, our last opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones at camp! Everyone is invited back to celebrate FAMILY, plan to join us for a 3-​day celebration of family, with workshops, events and fabulous meals stating Thursday July 13th, through Sunday morning, July 16th.

Cambodian Heritage Camp (CamHC) is the only camp in the U.S. specifically for Cambodian-​born adoptees and their families. Now in its 16th year, CamHC takes place at Snow Mountain Ranch in Fraser, Colorado, over 4 days in mid-​July. Families travel from across the U.S. and internationally to join each other for this event. We are joined by our outstanding network of Cambodian-​American volunteers from Colorado and both coasts who share their cultural heritage through their participation as camp counselors, workshop leaders and presenters.

Watch this site for updates on camp programming and activities as they are confirmed.

As always, we will explore the unique gifts and challenges that come with being transracial adoptive families. As our children grow, they will be dealing with issues faced by every child of color, no matter their country of birth. At camp, our children are with families just like theirs and they are surrounded by campers, counselors and community members who look like them. We enthusiastically celebrate their birth county, and we also celebrate adoption as a culture of its own. The impact and importance of being with families “just like theirs” at camp cannot be understated. It creates bonds between our children and our families that may not easily found in our communities and other areas of our daily lives.

Family Day: If you can arrive early, plan to participate in “Family Day” activities starting Wednesday evening, July 12th. There will be various family and group activities offered leading up to our official camp kick-​off Thursday evening, July 13th. We begin with our popular all camp BBQ dinner (optional) at 5pm Thursday July 13th. This is a great time to kick back and get reacquainted with old friends and meet new ones while enjoying a great meal. Cambodian Heritage Camp Opening Ceremonies follow at 7pm, and camp programming continues through Sunday morning, July 16th.

We hope to see you at camp in July. For further information, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or like our Facebook page for more camp connections!
