Camp is a wonderful experience to provide to youth who are touched by adoption and foster care. It's a time for them to be around other youth that share similar experiences. Relationships are built between campers and counselors that can last a lifetime.

  • Each summer we host a camp for for adopted children ages 9 to 18, along with their siblings (birth and foster siblings living in the same household) who are connected to DHR (i.e. at least one camp applicant must be adopted from foster care).

  • Each summer, we will host two camps for up to 200 IL youth ages 14-20 years of age. Activities of the camp build self-confidence and independent living skills among youth in foster care.
