Alcoholism and drug addiction in families are hard on children, especially over a long, hot summer. For children ages 7-12, Kids Camp at The Council offers a chance for kids to express feelings, gain support, and learn about recovery.
Kids Camp at The Council is three days of prevention, support, and recovery for children who love someone who drinks too much, abuses drugs, or may have done so in the past. Through art, games, role-play, and meaningful activities, kids learn to identify and express feelings, develop self-care skills, and deepen communication with their family. Above all, kids learn they are not alone and that other children and families have similar experiences.
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 at The Council on Recovery’s campus.
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.
