CTBWA's camps are cancelled this summer. We'll miss our great campers and volunteers

Giving siblings their right to reunite

Camp To Belong Washington – because the brothers and sisters who helped them endure abuse and neglect are no longer by their side 

For many reasons, children entering foster care and other out-of-home care must be placed in different homes. The brothers and sisters many have leaned on through times of trouble are no longer standing beside them giving their support and comfort, adding to their trauma and sense of isolation. For some kids in care, visits with separated siblings are rare because they are placed in different cities or across the state. 

Camp To Belong Washington believes these children have a right and a deep need to spend time with each other when it is impossible for them to live together. Their time at our camps and at other CTB WA activities helps siblings stay connected. And being with other youth who have experienced the same trauma helps them realize they are not alone.


Each summer, brothers and sisters reunite at Miracle Ranch on Horseshoe Lake on the beautiful Key Peninsula.  They laugh, cry, experience hope, begin healing, and create positive memories that will last a lifetime.

What they're saying ...

Ross Hunter, Secretary of the Washington Dept. of Children, Youth, and Families, talks during a 2019 visit to camp about the importance of CTB WA's work to bring separated siblings together.

Thank you, donors and volunteers!

Laughter and excitement overflowed at Camp To Belong's sibling Christmas parties in Port Orchard and Spokane. Dozens of children had a wish come true -- time with their brothers and sisters to celebrate the holidays together.


We at Camp To Belong Washington are so grateful to everyone who made these most special of parties so successful in reuniting children who must live apart from

their siblings. They enjoyed a joyous, memorable and meaningful occasion, made better because they were able to share the experience with those they love.

Our heartfelt thanks, especially, to the Rotary Club of Bremerton for a community grant that helped fund the Western Washington party, and to Fostering Washington for Christmas gifts for Eastern Washington party-goers.
