FOUR DAYS A SUMMER.…IMPACT FOR LIFE!
Even among the unique group of culture camps that comprises the Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families family, Thai Heritage Camp stands out. Now in its 1st year, it is the only culture camp in the U.S. that is specifically geared toward Thailand-born adoptees and their families.
As always, we will explore the unique gifts and challenges that come with our mostly transracial adoptive families. We realize that as your children grow, they will be dealing with issues faced by any child of color, no matter their country of birth. At our camp, they are with a sea of families who are like theirs, and with children who are in the majority for a few days. Though we enthusiastically celebrate their birth county, 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 are not easily found in our communities and other areas of our daily lives.
If you can arrive early, plan to participate in “Family Day” activities starting Wednesday evening, date tbd.
