2017 Camp Dates: June 24 – June 30

Camp To Belong New York reunites siblings separated by foster care for a week of camp at the YMCA’s Camp Chingachgook in Lake George. Children in foster care who have been removed from their homes and families often suffer from the effects of abuse, neglect and trauma. Camp To Belong allows siblings to connect and bond with each other through various camp activities making for a memorable week. For many, this is the only time they will see their siblings.
