Blooming Place for Kids provides safe and tested activities while providing happy experiences that last a lifetime for children who have come from horrific circumstances!
They have a chance to be with others who are coping with the adversity and uncertainty of growing up in foster care. Our program is specifically designed to build self-confidence and allows children to safely enjoy the activities of a very traditional camp. Between swimming and evening campfires, roasting marshmallows and hayrides, children whose lives have been gravely affected by neglect and abuse are transformed into just "kids." They have a chance to be with other children who cope every day with similar circumstances, situations and emotions, and they realize that they are not alone.
The campers develop special relationships with each other while sharing and learning to trust. Camp activities include: Swimming, fishing trips, arts and crafts, theatre, skits, dancing, song time, tennis, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, ropes course, rock wall, hugs, hugs and more hugs.
