Camp Connect San Diego brings together siblings who have been separated by their placement in the foster care system. The relationship between siblings is crucial, and many children feel additional grief and loss when separated from brothers and sisters after removal from their parents' home. These children need their siblings to maintain some sense of identity and survive the emotional trauma. The program offers youths numerous opportunities to connect with their siblings, including a four-day camp and sever day activities. Each event, with a minimum of five per year, hosts approximately 65-80 children ages 6-18. The focus is on bonding activities, such as making memory books, swimming, rock climbing and horseback riding. San Diego County Child Welfare Services provides program oversight, volunteer recruitment and background clearances, staff orientation/training, outcomes measurement development, administration and reporting. Volunteers consist of social workers, mentors, attorneys and other community advocates.
