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 have an awareness and appreciation of their dual heritage.
Our camps focus on building relationships, learning about 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.
