Holt International Adoptee DAY Camp for ages 5-8yrs & parents
Day camp is tailored for adoptees and parents to experience together. This single day of workshops, activities and games for adoptees and their parents will help foster new skills to talk about adoption in a fun and exciting setting. The program includes adoptee identity and race/racism education, Q&A sessions with adult adoptees and an emphasis on interactivity with both other adoptees and adoptive parents. This day camp is also an excellent way to experience our full adoptee camp without the week-long, overnight commitment!
