From nationally-renowned speakers and experts in the field, adult campers gain parenting skills and access to additional specialized resources. In fact, the roster of topics and speakers for our adult workshops often rival those of nationally renowned adoption conferences at any one of our camps.
Through developmentally appropriate art workshops, wilderness experiences and volunteer activities, children express – verbally and nonverbally – their feelings and thoughts about their adoption experience, identity issues, feelings of racism, etc.
HCAF recognizes the importance of giving youth the tools to enter The Identity Years (18-26) with buttressed confidence and self-esteem around their racial and adoptive identities. Our signature summer camp programs, trademarked exclusively to HCAF, help us accomplish that goal:
A Thank You from one of our More Than Me recipients, the BMRT Roundtable School in Bangalore, India:
I personally wanted to thank you and all the kids in the camp for helping the school children. Of course we see corporations lending their support all the time, but it is really heartening to see kids supporting kids across borders and to me this is any day bigger than any other kind of support we can get. Cheers,
Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families, Inc.
