Where Kids Transform
Camp Mariposa Southwest Ohio is a free weekend camp for children ages 9-12 who are affected by the substance use disorder of a loved one. Youth who attend participate in fun, traditional camp activities such as swimming, canoeing, and archery along side education and support exercises teaching critical life skills and self-care. Camp is held four to six times a year from Friday evening to Sunday.
Campers and adult mentors make a one-year commitment to the program. Additional social activities are offered for children and their families throughout the year, and all program activities are offered free of charge to families.
