Interview with Griffin’s Mother


“I think being around other kids who were adopted was very comforting and powerful – to be around kids who were ‘the same as him.'”

“She seems proud to be adopted. Much more open talking to her friends about it.”

“She realized there is nothing weird or different about her and is working on self-acceptance.”

“I am very impressed that the adoption-nonadoption kids fused together as a community even though they were allowed distinction!”

“Thank you all for a job so well done. Our son said he wants to continue going every year and then he aspires to be a camp counselor one day at Camp Clio.”

“I am so grateful for this extremely unique and awesome camp experience! My son truly loved it and seems more independent since he has been back!”

“Camp Clio was a ‘safe’ first experience with sleep-away camp. The focus on adoption made her feel special. It was an empowering, satisfying week. Well done – and thanks.”

“As usual, the first week of school brought with it a series of stupid comments re: her being adopted. She proudly responded with WISE-UP answers.”

“Our son loved the camp. Thanks!”
