Alcoholism and drug addiction in families are really hard on children. That’s why The Council on Recovery sponsors Kids Camp for children ages 7-12 from homes affected by alcoholism and drug abuse. For children whose parents are struggling with addiction, Kids Camp is a break from it all—a chance to have fun, expresses feelings, and heal the hurt. The next Kids Camp at The Council is March 16-19th and registration is still open to all.
Kids Camp at The Council helps kids learn they are not alone and that other kids and families have similar experiences. Through art, games, role-play, and fun activities, kids learn to identify and express feelings, develop self-care skills, and deepen communication with their family.
Parents, caregivers, and teen siblings join the children for portions of the program, including family education and support. All services are provided in a safe and confidential setting.
Kids Camp at The Council helps parents and children open lines of communication and heal the hurt in their relationships. By learning about addiction in an age-appropriate way, kids gain valuable insight and understanding. The entire family learns new skills and is given the tools to recover.
It takes great courage to address the struggles and obstacles your family may be experiencing. Now is the time to show your children that family can prevail, healing is possible, and there is hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Kids Camp at The Council is offered throughout the year. To see the dates of upcoming Kids Camp, click here!
