Who should attend
All adopted children entering kindergarten through 8th grade in Fall 2013 are welcome at Adoption Day Camp. We encourage siblings who were not adopted to attend camp as well. Camp activities and discussion topics will be age-appropriate, by grade level.

What to expect
Every morning, Children's Home staff and volunteers create a fun and active adoption camp program where children and families can celebrate their common bond: adoption! Adoption-specific activities will be presented in a fun, age-appropriate way and conversation topics will include feelings, teasing, self-esteem, racism and identity.
In the afternoon, activities expand to include traditional camp activities such as swimming, canoeing, archery, fishing, environmental education, cookouts, arts and crafts, and much more through our unique partnership with YMCA Camp Streefland. Campers will remain with their Children's Home group throughout the day.
YMCA Camp Streefland is located at beautiful Lake Kinsgley in Lakeville, Minn., a southern suburb of Minneapolis-St. Paul. | Learn more > |
