Moyer Foundation’s Camp Mariposa® Program
The Moyer Foundation’s Camp Mariposa® Program is a national addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth who have been impacted by substance abuse in their families. Camp Mariposa was designed in consultation with Claudia Black, an internationally recognized pioneer in the area of addiction and its impact on children. Camp Mariposa is offered free of charge to all families. Children ages 9-12 attend transformational weekend camps multiple times a year. Campers participate in fun traditional camp activities combined with education and support exercises led by mental health professionals and trained mentors. Additional educational, social and mentoring activities are offered for campers, teens, and their families throughout the year. These activities build knowledge, coping skills, confidence and an opportunity to connect with one another. Led by mental health professionals and trained volunteers, Camp Mariposa provides a safe, fun and supportive environment critical to help break the cycle of addiction. Camp Mariposa currently offers 66 free camp sessions a year at 11 locations around the country including Los Angeles and San Diego, CA; Washington, DC; Sarasota, and St. Petersburg, FL; Eastern Kentucky; New Orleans, LA; South Bend, IN; Nashua, NH; Philadelphia, PA; and Seattle, WA
