Welcome to Camp To Belong Georgia
Currently, there are more than 7,000 children living in
foster care in Georgia, with an estimated 50% separated from at least
one sibling. Add the number of siblings separated by adoption, kinship
care, and other out-of-home care, and we then have many more children
who are being torn from a birth right - their siblings. They miss out
on the opportunity to experience the special bond with and unconditional
love of their siblings. Brothers and sisters are frequently taken for
granted, yet they are often the first ones turned to for unconditional
love and support, which may be especially important in out-of-home care
situations. In fact, sibling relationships are generally the longest relationships
we experience in life, and at Camp To Belong Georgia, it is our vision
to allow all children in care in Georgia to enjoy this unique bond.
The mission of Camp To Belong is to reunite siblings
placed in separate foster homes or other out-of-home care for events
that encourage emotional empowerment, social maturation, positive
outlook, fun and sibling connection. Secondly, we seek to serve
as the catalyst for system changing solutions regarding sibling policy,
recruitment of foster and adoptive families for siblings and best
practice among child welfare professionals both domestically and
