We are so grateful our neighbor told us about camp when our son Josh was 8. It was Josh’s first overnight camp, and he had an incredible time. He asked repeatedly if he could go back next year. The counselors kept the kids busy with tons of fun activities, hands-on cooking classes, tie dye, campfires, movie nights, and most importantly making friends with other adopted kids. We appreciated the camp taught him about several Asian cultures, and it provided age-appropriate ways to discuss adoption as part of his identity. We hope he will be part of the camp family for many years to come.

My son has been attending this camp for the last five years and it has become the hub around which all of our other summer plans revolve.
Needless to say, he absolutely loves it. More than simply enjoying the programming and time with friends, he comes home with pride in his Asian heritage renewed and the bonds he shares with kids that share his origin story strengthened.
From a parent’s perspective, I am awe struck each year by the amount of time, love and dedication poured not only into the programming but most especially into each camper by the directors and counselors. It is a rich curriculum, simultaneously infusing lessons on Asian culture with a lot of fun. Beyond providing diverse cultural experiences, and perhaps most importantly, there is a focus on connection between the campers and the staff. This camp is not only instilling important lessons about heritage, it is establishing connections among these extraordinary kids who share extraordinary circumstances that will last a lifetime.
