Kidz Kamp Horseback Riding

Community Outreach has offered day summer camps for our children in foster care for many years. Many of our children live in communities where they are the only one in foster care in their school or in the entire county. They tend to think they are the only ones in the world living away from their families. SFCS believes these camps play a big part in helping these children connect and spend time with others under the same circumstances.

It is wonderful to see the look on their faces the very first day when they learn everyone at camp is in foster care! We learned after the first year to have small notepads ready for each one as they were writing addresses and phone numbers on napkins and anything else they could find. They very much felt a connection. For more information on Kidz Kamp, please contact 800.898.4903


Life Skills Training

The Life Skills Training program is designed for youths 15 years of age and older. The goal is for youths to be able to obtain and maintain a stable and safe place to live, be able to obtain and maintain stable employment, have information on post-secondary and financial options, have information on parenting and/or basic child care, and know how to access medical and mental health services. Every youth will have identified at least one adult mentor in the community to whom he or she can go for support.  For more information, please view the Independent Living Retreat Brochure or contact 913.367.5085.
