Though we are moving forward with and excited about planning Camp APAC 2021, as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic and formulating the best plan to mitigate the risk thereof, we have made the decision to move the minimum camper age to 12 this year.  We expect to include campers ages 9 – 11 in the 2022 edition of Camp APAC. 



Alabama Pre/Post Adoption Connections (APAC), a collaborative program of CAS and Alabama DHR, would like to invite your family to be a part of our annual Camp APAC held at the beautiful Camp ASCCA in Jackson's Gap, Alabama, June 22-25, 2021.

This wonderful event is for adopted children ages 12 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). Children in permanent custody of DHR with a plan of adoption by their current placement are also eligible to attend. Limited slots will also be available for non-DHR connected families at a cost of $175 for these 4 great days of fun!

Camp APAC staff includes social workers and other trained and qualified adults to work with and supervise your child around the clock. Licensed nurses are also on duty to administer medications and provide for any medical needs that may arise.

Camper Application
Camper applications will open on January 11 and must be submitted by February 7.

Camper Acceptance
Camp APAC camper acceptance is prioritized by several factors. They include consideration of camp budget constraints and a balanced population; ratio of age, gender, county of residence, type of adoption (public/private) and racial diversity. Camp APAC is designed for all children, regardless of special needs. Children with physical, mental or developmental difficulties are encouraged to apply; however, consideration for acceptance is weighed based on staffing patterns and needs when one-on-one or special-care attention is required.
