Youth Development

Camp Mariposa

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.

Camp Mariposa Helps Youth:

Reduce feelings of isolation and guilt

Connect with friends facing similar situations

Learn that addiction is a disease and it's not their fault

Build confidence

Learn critical life skills that help manage feelings and practice self-care
