At Promises2Kids, we believe all foster youth deserve the chance to experience the life-changing power of summer camp. Since 2008, Camp Connect has supported brothers and sisters who are separated in the foster care system through sibling visits, monthly events, and a 4-day/3-night summer camp. Camp Connect provides siblings separated in foster care an environment of fun and safety, allowing them for a short time to set aside their trauma and experience the joy of being a kid while connecting with their brothers and sisters. This year, Camp Connect is increasing sibling camp to 6-days/5-nights!
Promises2Kids is excited to announce that the second half of Summer Camp, August 4-6, will be open to all youth in care. Eligibility for the second half of camp will not be dependent on having a separated sibling. Instead, eligibility for Promises2Kids Summer Camp will be:
- Camper must be between the ages of 10-18
- Have an open, out-of-home, foster care case in San Diego County
A Promises2Kids staff member will reach out within 10 business days of application submission to review eligibility. We appreciate your patience with us as we work to serve the greatest amount of youth possible this summer.
Summer Camp Dates:
- Camp Connect Sibling Summer Camp – August 1-6
