Camp APAC 2013: For Adopted Kids

Alabama Pre/Post Adoption Connections (APAC), a collaborative program of CAS and Alabama DHR, would like to invite your family to be a part of our 10th Annual Camp APAC. This wonderful event is for adopted children ages 9 to 18, along with their siblings (birth and foster siblings living in the same household). Children in permanent custody of DHR with a plan of adoption by their current placement are also eligible to attend.

This year’s camp will be held June 18-21 at Camp ASCCA in Jackson’s Gap, Alabama. Camp APAC costs only $250 for 4 great days of fun! This fee is completely waived for families who have at least one camper applicant adopted from foster care.

Camp APAC staff include social workers and other trained and qualified adults to work with and supervise your child around the clock. Licensed nurses are also on duty to administer medications and provide for any medical needs that may arise.

The amenities at Camp ASCAA are outstanding and sure to enhance the fun and safe environment provided for each camper! You can learn more about Camp ASCCA by visiting



CAMPER ACCEPTANCE: Camp APAC camper acceptance is prioritized by several factors. They include consideration of camp budget constraints and a balanced population; ratio of age, gender, county of residence, type of adoption (public/private) and racial diversity.

Camp APAC is designed for children with AND without special needs. Children with physical, mental or educational difficulties are encouraged to apply. However, consideration for acceptance is given when one-on-one special care or attention is not required.

STAFF APPLICATIONS: Applications to serve as a staffer at Camp APAC 2013 will be available in late February. Like us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter to receive updates!
