Putting It All Together: Adoption, Race & Family
A Gathering for Adoptive Families With Children of Color
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 during your stay.
Pact is committed to making camp affordable to families, we expect to provide scholarship assistance to families with a yearly income under $100K, generally this is 20-25% of attending families. Awards are determined by reviewing each family’s resources, priority is given to those who apply by February 15th. To apply complete and return the 2015 Scholarship Application (94KB | ).

Although Pact Camp is full we invite families to register and become part of our wait list by paying a deposit of $250 per person attending camp. If space does not become available your deposit will be fully refunded. We will contact you with the balance due in the event that space opens up. Use the pricing grid below to estimate the cost for your family to attend. Please note refund policy below applies.
Refunds: We realize that the cost of Pact Family Camp is significant. We cannot offer refunds because of the enormous financial obligation we incur when we register families for camp. Organizing Pact Family Camp requires contractual obligations to provide housing, food, instructional and recreational facilities, counseling and administrative staff (with carefully maintained child-to-counselor ratios), and speakers from across the country. All of these costs are nonrefundable for Pact. For that reason, Camp fees are nonrefundable once paid except in the case of death, illness, or emergent disability. While refunds are not available, we will consider requests to roll part of the fees over to be applied to the following year’s Camp.
