About the Location

This year the group will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma at a large residence for retreats.  Each participant will be staying in a room with a counselor.  The teens will need to bring a sleeping bag and pillows to sleep on the carpeted floor.  


There will be an outdoor pool, movie room, paddleboat on a pond, basketball court, and large kitchen for cultural cooking classes.  In the morning the teens will have the chance to participate in breakout sessions to talk about adoption-related topics and then team building activities in the afternoon for bonding.


The location will be sent to all registered participants' families.  The house is located within the Tulsa area.


Why Attend Discovery Days

Being a teenager brings its own set of excitement and challenges.  One thing we understand about teens is that it takes a village to raise and support them.  Discovery Days were created to help expand that village into a place where teens who have been adopted can come and get support from other teens who understand more of what they are going through.


For three days, teens who have been adopted get to be reminded that they are not alone.  There are other teens who understand what they are feeling, experiencing, and have similar stories.  There are others who have similar family structures and have multi-cultural experiences.  This is a safe place for teens to grow and connect.
