Our Mission

Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families serves as a post adoption resource and advocate for children and families with diverse heritages.

We accomplish this by facilitating annual heritage camps, which provide culturally relevant and family-​centered experiences for every member of the family.

These camps provide an opportunity to share in a common experience that fulfills a sense of community and individual identity. It is our hope that every adopted child will leave a heritage camp knowing more about who they are and where they came from, and that every member of the family will have a better awareness of and sense of pride in their adopted child’s birth heritage. The camps let children and families relish in being part of a larger group “just like themselves.”
