US to Colombia to US

Based on Gladney’s successful US based Bright Futures Camp,the Hope Exchange Camp offers a fun-filled week of camp activities including sightseeing and the opportunity for children awaiting adoption to spend time with a loving prospective adoptive family. Being in Colombia offers some additional benefits to both parents and children. 
By going to Colombia, families can spend more time with their child before placement and have the opportunity to experience Colombian culture first hand –- both of these experiences will help build a strong foundation and bond. Additionally, because the children remain on familiar turf, they experience less culture shock and feel more at ease with prospective parents.
What an exciting opportunity to brighten the life of a child living in an orphanage, and experience the culture first hand!
For planning purposes, families must have submitted their application by February 1, 2014. There is a lot to do, but Gladney has experts to guide you through every step of the process. The first step is to get more information about the camp by contacting Judy Hayes via email or 432.563.3344.  Don't miss this unique opportunity!
