AdopTween Day Camp

Join us for our first-ever AdopTween Day Camp this summer from June 30-July 2! This is a brand new event that takes full inspiration from our year-round AdopTween program and the early years of our fan favorite Adopteen Camp-Conference.

Campers are invited to join us for three days of connection and celebration. We will be jam-packing our days with meaningful adventures and having the time of our lives. 

AdopTween Day Camp is not a cultural camp. Day Camp is an amazing chance for your Tween to step outside of their comfort zone and form lifelong connections with fellow pre-teen adoptees and older adoptee mentors from around the country. With workshops, excursions, and discussions, this is a wonderful chance for your Tween to start exploring their adoption identity with confidence, support, and pride. 

Event highlights:

  • Family Potluck Dinner on Saturday, July 1st
  • Slumber Party for all of the campers, Saturday, July 1st – Sunday, July 2nd

Entirely organized and led by adoptees, AdopTween Day Camp is guaranteed to be an impactful, inspiring, and life-changing weekend for your Tween. We hope your Tween can join us!

Exciting Workshops

Our AdopTween Day Camp workshops will allow campers to learn fun new skills, discover hidden talents, take control of and celebrate their stories, and possibly even level up their Pokémon. Day Camp includes four interactive workshops for tweens to engage, reflect, and create. It is our hope that campers will leave each workshop learning more about themselves and feeling more empowered and proud.

Fun Excursions

Although most of Day Camp will be on campus at our The Park headquarters, we’ll also make time for some exciting excursions off campus to visit some of Denver’s coolest destinations! Whether it’s a pool party or a day at the amusement park, make sure to bring your sunglasses and bold sense of adventure 🙂 We’re going to have a blast.

Meaningful Conversations

The conversations that AdopTween Day Camp inspires are simple, personal, and precious. AdopTween prioritizes connection through fun. We have a lot of fun (and we mean A LOT of fun) and it’s through the fun that true, purposeful conversations are found.
