Family Camp 2024

Intentional Inclusivity: Creating a Bright Path to Community and Belonging.  

Dates: August 1-4
Location: Ohio University
Athens, Ohio

We are excited to announce that Transracial Journeys Family Camp 2024 registration is open!

If you have never attended this camp, you may ask, “What is Transracial Journeys Family Camp?” Camp is a unique place for learning and discussing the intersecting issues of adoption, race, class and culture, and identity for the whole family. Camp is a place for fun - arts & crafts, playing games, swimming, talent show, campfire, catching up with old friends, making new friends, walks outside, long heartfelt chats, and much more.

Camp is for the whole family - transracially adopted children, biological siblings, and adoptive parents. Camp is a place for parents and children to be in community with other families that mirror each other and counselors who have lived experiences with transracial adoption.

Intentional Inclusivity: Creating a Bright Path to Community and Belonging

This year’s theme is - Intentional Inclusivity: Creating a Bright Path to Community and Belonging.  

As always, we will create space for deep learning and development as well as moments for joy and connection.   Together, we will work to soften the sharp edges of exclusion that come with adoption, family separation and differences of race.  Together, with our amazing presenters, counselors and staff, we will co-create the brightest path to belonging for the children entrusted to you through adoption, for you as parents and for your extended family.  

Camp will be held August 1-4 at Ohio University and registration is now open!  Please note, we will only be accepting 40 families in total and last year we sold out in 48 hours.  A completed online registration and payment secures your spot at camp. We will create a waiting list once camp sells out.
