Open to all adopted children or siblings of adopted children, regardless of placing agency
Children’s Home and LSS Adoption Day Camp is a classic, summer camp experience that combines adoption-specific programming and traditional camp activities. During the morning, adopted children ages 6-13 and their siblings participate in age-appropriate discussions and activities about adoption and culture. Then, in the afternoon, the kids head over to the beautiful YMCA Camp Streefland in Lakeville, Minn. to enjoy swimming, canoeing, and other fun camp activities.
Adoption Day Camp generally runs Monday through Friday during a week in June. The activities start at 8:45 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. The official dates of 2016 camp will be posted as the details are confirmed.

Ideal for teens who want to continue the tradition of attending Adoption Day Camp. Youth who are entering 9th grade in Fall 2016, or are older, are especially helpful during Adoption Day Camp because they act as positive role models for the campers. As a Junior Counselor you’ll team up with other volunteers and staff to work with a group of children, ensuring the campers have a fun and positive experience. Note: previous attendance as an Adoption Day Camper is not required to become a Junior Counselor.
Time Commitment: Monday–Friday, June 15–19 | Full Day 8:30–4:00 p.m
Note dates for 2016 Adoption Camp are TBD. Generally refunds are allowed on a timed schedule. Please check back for additional information on the 2016 Cancellation Policy.
