Pact Family Camp
Pact Family Camp
A Gathering for Adoptive Families With Children of Color
Putting It All Together: Adoption, Race & Family
July 3-8th, 2014
By popular demand camp has been extended a day!
The “jewel in the crown” of Pact’s educational programs is Pact Family Camp: a weeklong summer retreat where adopted children of color and their families can share their experiences while learning from experts and each other.
Your camp registration includes: all adult and children program fees, standard housing (equivalent to a standard hotel room), and all meals and snacks.
Pact is committed to making camp affordable to families. In 2013 we provided scholarship assistance to more than 20% of the families who attended Camp. We have a fixed budget for scholarships and invite all families whose income is under $100K to apply. Awards are determined by reviewing each family's total resources coupled with the amount of funds available. For more information download the scholarship packet (639KB | )
Late registration fee of 10% added to cost per family/individual after May 1st.
Teen & Extended Family Member Fees (If Applicable)
Teens: There is an additional fee of $650/ per teen. Teens are supervised by Pact Staff 21 hours a day, and sleep in their own quarters with their counselors.
Extended family Members: We invite extended family members to attend Camp, if they will be housing with your family in your room you may simply add them to your family (increasing the size of your family) to calculate the additional fee applied.
Housing Upgrades (optional)
All of our housing is hotel style, with private bath and shared rooms with an appropriate number of beds for your family (sometimes this includes murphy beds and/or sofa beds). Some families request kitchens and/or a second bedroom (suite housing) Depending on the number of families attending, this option is sometimes available. Families who want suite housing, must have already upgraded to kitchen housing ($500) to qualify for the final lottery for the limited number of suites (additional $1000) that are usually available. Suite housing will be assigned by May 15th.
Pre/Post Camp Stay
Arrangements to stay onsite before and after camp must be made through Pact (this is different than previous years). Single rooms are available for $150/night per family (breakfast included). We will do our best to ensure that families may stay in the same room as their assigned room during camp. Click here to extend your stay. You will be directed to another web page to make these accomodations.
We realize that Pact Family Camp comes at a significant cost for many families. We cannot offer refunds because of the enormous financial obligation we incur when we register families for camp because organizing Pact Family Camp requires significant contractual obligations to provide facilities, housing, food, counselors, nationally renowned speakers, wonderful opportunities for recreation, and administrative support. All of these costs are nonrefundable for Pact. Once paid, Camp fees are nonrefundable. Please take care in making your summer plans.
