Adult Adoptee Programming

HCAF is Forever! The Adult Adoptee Program, for adoptees that are ages 18-23, is offered at HCAF’s 9 adoption camps. Participants benefit from social networking with other adoptees, outdoor and artistic activities focused on relationship building, and workshops built around shared experiences, such as exploring identity and new phases into adulthood. We recognize that experiences related to adoption don’t disappear when a person graduates high school, or has their 18th birthday. Relationships with older adult adoptees and structured conversations provide essential support. 

“We’ve heard from so many high school graduates who feel they need the continued support that Heritage Camps has offered throughout their childhood and adolescence. Adoptees like myself often realize that the transition into adulthood brings up very different issues, related to things like dating and marriage, or fitting into your cultural and racial group in a new community,” explains Narmada Morris, a previous Board Member and former camper.

Each camp has its own unique programming, developed by adoptees, for adoptees.
