Heritage Events

Dillon International provides adoptees opportunities to learn about their birth heritage through our annual heritage camps and events.

We believe it is important for adoptees to be aware and appreciate their dual heritage.


Our camps focus on building relationships, learning about the culture, and having fun. For many families, heritage camp is an annual tradition and an important developmental step in an adoptee’s life. All family members are invited to attend our events.

Who is invited

  • Campers between the ages of 4 (by August 1, 2024) to 6th grade completed.

  • Junior high students who have completed 7th and 8th grade.

  • Adults are encouraged to volunteer and attend workshops.

  • Nursery is available for younger children.

  • High school students have fun volunteering as teen counselors!


Activities for everyone

  • Learning about your family's dual heritage

  • Making new friends

  • Parents enjoy attending workshops and conversing

  • Friday evening is Family Night. More details will be sent later. This evening event is free.

  • Saturday will conclude with a special program presented by the campers

  • Enjoy shopping? The camp store will sell items from Birth Country


Costs (Three-day event costs are below.  For shorter camps, the price varies per camp.  Please check applications for specific pricing for these events.)

  • $175 per camper

  • $115 per junior high student

  • $65 per high school teen counselor

  • $85 per Parent Package


We recognize that the past few years have been difficult financially for many families, and we never want cost to be the reason a family is unable to attend camp. We will still be offering a 50% discount for any camper whose parent volunteers to be a classroom teacher, as well as a $30 early bird discount for any registrations submitted prior to March 31st. Additionally, there is also a partial scholarship program available to any family who would benefit from further assistance. For information about camp scholarships.

Typical Camp Schedule (for full camp days)

  • Camp is from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM each day.

  • Campers will rotate to different cultural classes all throughout the camp day.  Parent teachers and teen volunteers lead each group.

  • Parent workshops are held during camp.  There will be two parent workshops per day, including topics on culture and adoption.

  • Child care for younger than 4 years old is available for workshop participants and camp volunteers.


Parents, we need you!

The success of the camp depends on parent volunteers. Please consider volunteering, to sign up!  We will contact you in 1-2 weeks after you submit the form. A separate application is required for each adult volunteer.
