UMOJA is a Black Heritage and Culture camp for families raising African American children through adoption, foster care, or kinship care. UMOJA camps will benefit parents of any race by providing an honest and transformational look at the resistance and resilience of Black people throughout history.
We offer three camps each year with programming and education for all members of the family.
Each camp has supportive education for parents related to race, racial identity, and racism; positive hair and skincare; interracial family dynamics; educational advocacy; and other topics related to the specific needs of adoptive, foster, and kinship care families.
Each camp also has engaging education for youth focused on positive racial identity development through a celebration of African nations and discussions of the history of strength and resistance of Black people in African nations and the U.S.
