Camp to Belong Alabama
The reality for children living in foster care is not one often considered on a day to day level. The kids are shuffled between homes and separated from the people they know, including their brothers and sisters. Many do not have much to begin with, and may be living in a world surrounded by addiction, abuse and severe neglect. They are not always taught how to ride a bike or swim or thrown birthday parties with all their friends and family, rites of passage in childhood that many of us take for granted.
Camp To Belong Alabama (CTB-AL) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to reuniting brothers and sisters who have become separated in foster care through a week of camp in the summer and other events throughout the year.
At Camp To Belong Alabama we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to spend meaningful time with their brothers and sisters and we are dedicated to helping make that happen for kids living in foster care. While many of us take for granted the opportunity to share meals, play games and say goodnight to our siblings each day, the kids we serve at Camp To Belong Alabama cherish these small moments that they do not always have. These moments are what Camp To Belong Alabama works to create, so kids living in foster care are able to have positive childhood memories.
At Camp To Belong Alabama we also believe that every kid deserves a special place where they finally feel like they fit in and are not judged for being in foster care. We provide kids living in foster care a chance to escape the chaos of their ever changing worlds and come to a place where they are no different from everyone else, they belong and they can just be kids.
