34th Annual Camp Recovery

"Living the Promises"

For Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families, with CoDA and all other 12-Step programs invited.

What is Camp Recovery?

It is a weekend retreat of self-care and fellowship that is held every year during the Spring. It's an opportunity for you and your Inner Child to grow, heal, play, discover, reflect, and work on yourselves. This year we are gathering at Camp Cedar Falls in Angelus Oaks, CA. Come join your fellow travelers in the tall trees and fresh air of the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains!

What we do?

This year we are focusing on the ACA Promises. Our program is based on the Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families program. We cooperate with all other 12 Step programs, so persons from other programs are invited and welcome to attend. We venture deeper into our recovery with enthusiasm through workshops, 12 Step meetings, crafts, music, hiking, dancing, Talent/No Talent show, and fellowship.

We look forward to seeing you this Spring!

Note: Please be aware that Sunday, May 14 is Mother's Day.

Camperships are matching financial assistance (in the amount of $100) for those who cannot otherwise afford to attend camp. We believe everyone who has a sincere desire to recover should have the opportunity to attend camp! Camperships are dependent on the generosity of the fellowship and on a first come, first served basis. Camperships are confidential and are given with the understanding that service will be rendered at camp. If you are granted a campership, we ask that you be of service at camp. The campership coordinator will contact you with service options.

Giving to the Campership Fund - Would you consider contributing $10, $20, $30 or more to the Campership fund? Donations are accepted via Zelle or PayPal (Friends and Family option) to
