Culture Camp for Adoptive and Foster Families

Kaleidoscope Culture Camp is for children that joined their families through adoption or foster care, their siblings and their parents.

July 20 - 24, 2015
 9:00am - 3:00pm


Trinity Lutheran School
405 S Rush St
Roselle, IL 60172

This year they are offering 4 home-culture camp programs:  African American, Chinese, Eastern European and Latin American.  These programs are designed for children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade in the fall of 2015.   Children will be divided into groups by age and will participate in cultural experiences that may involve: language, food, dance, song, folklore, traditions, architecture, and exploring the people/land/animals of their homeland.

They developed a new program for pre-teens and teens last summer and it was a great success!  Campers entering grades 7th through 10th will be eligible for this new program (ages 12 – 15).  Pre-teens / teens will spend the morning in the teen camp and the afternoon back in their home camps.  For those pre-teens / teens that would prefer, they may remain in their home culture camps for the entire day.

They also offer a program for younger childrenSafari is for pre-school age children, typically 3 and 4 year olds.  Safari resembles a modified pre-school program, which includes cultural activities and games.  Safari’s enrollment is limited to families with an older child enrolled in one of our other programs and where a parent volunteers at camp for the week.  

Kaleidoscope Culture Camp is an initiative of Chicago Area Families For Adoption (CAFFA).  For more information or to register, click HERE
