HAPPY CAMPER HANGOUTS

Happy Camper Hangouts is a FREE year-round virtual extracurricular program for kids in foster care.  

Happy Camper Hangouts consists of weekly series-based sessions where campers can participate in fun, safe, and accessible extracurricular activities - like music, dance, athletics, creative arts, martial arts, as well as featured guests in the entertainment, sports, and culinary industries. 

 

They also have pre-recorded extracurricular/recreational content that is available 24/7 on their  Happy Camper Live platform.

You can also take advantage of “cabin time”, which gives youth an opportunity to connect in a smaller group setting with peers and camp counselors, all of whom have had lived experience in foster care.

Hangouts are every Thursday from 4:00 pm-5:15 pm PST/7:00 pm-8:15 pm EST.

 

If you are a foster youth aged 7-17, sign up today to participate year-round!

HERE ARE THE DATES FOR SEPTEMBER:

  • September 2 - Creative Writing

  • September 9- Celebrity Guest – Disney’s Cassidey Fralin

  • September 16- Folklorico

  • September 23 - Zumba
