Dedicated to the Sibling Connection Initiative,
Reuniting Siblings Placed in Separate Foster Homes or
Other Out-of-Home Care. . .
Camp To Belong of Georgia is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization
reuniting brothers and sisters placed in separate foster, adoptive
or kinship homes through Summer Camp Programs and year-round events.
Siblings in care may not have the opportunity to read bedtime stories together at night, have breakfast together, cheer for each other at school functions or share precious holidays – all the things that typical siblings get to do each day. Though we often take siblings for granted, the sibling relationship is typically our longest relationship in life, and at Camp To Belong Georgia, we strive to provide opportunities to nurture these relationships and forge lasting bonds.
Our primary goal is to provide a sense of belonging to youth in care, allowing them to express themselves as individuals and as siblings and giving them opportunities to share childhood memories together and among other youth in similar situations.
Our flagship events are our Summer Camp Programs, during which we reunite brothers and sisters in a safe, neutral, week-long camp environment to create childhood memories together that they would not have otherwise due to living in separate homes.
Each Summer Camp provides intentional programming designed to strengthen sibling connection. Our Signature Programs include Art activities, Sibling Enhancement, Life Seminar and Mentoring Programs as well as the Birthday Party Event.
Meet Our Board
Camp To Belong Georgia is led by a working board of 14 volunteers and a part-time executive director. . We are currently seeking additional board members with a heart for separated siblings and a desire to serve others.
Camp To Belong Georgia is an affiliate of the national organization, Camp To Belong (CTB). Camp To Belong has been actively reuniting brothers and sisters through camp programs and reunions since 1995.
There are over 7,000 youth in foster care in the state of Georgia. Thirty percent of those children have been in foster care more than 24 months, and an estimated 50% of those with siblings are separated from at least one of their brothers and sisters.
CTB has received national and international recognition thanks to founder Lynn Price, whose childhood experience in foster care inspired her as an adult to found the organization. Her personal story, passion and commitment to reuniting siblings separated by foster care has inspired seven other states to create affiliate camp sites. She is an amazing woman with an amazing story and has touched the lives of over 2,500 youth with her camps.
