Family camp subsidies

We're happy to help you with your camp program or young camper's needs.

Wherever you are in adoption, we've been there too. 

This year, AFABC is offering two Family Camps: Camp Homewood on Quadra Island, and Timberline in Maple Ridge. Since we cannot be all everywhere around the province at once, we are happy to support other groups who can offer camps that align with our mission to support all adoptive families. The AFABC Board of Directors understands that families needs support as they navigate their adoption jouney and has dedicated funding to support local community camps. This year's recipients are:

What the program does

AFABC offers funding to community groups coordinating camps that support adoptive families. AFABC also coordinates Adoptive Family Camps around the province where and when we have staff or volunteers available to organize and run these events. But we realize we cannot be everywhere and we are happy to support other groups who can offer camps that align with our mission and mandate to support adoptive families.

This year, AFABC has dedicated funding to support these community camps. Additionally, AFABC may be able to assist with funding for a child or youth to participate in a camp specific to their individual needs.
