Founded by Lynn Price in 1995, Camp To Belong was created out of Lynn’s own childhood experience in the foster care system. At the age of 8, Lynn learned that she had a biological sister living on the other side of town! However, with limited visits throughout their childhood, Lynn and sister Andi only developed a solid friendship as young adults. As their friendship continues to deepen, they realize how much they love and need each other, while sadly realizing how much they missed growing up apart. With this aching etched in Lynn’s heart, she founded CAMP TO BELONG and works full time in an effort to give brothers and sisters an opportunity to create childhood memories. As a spirited team, Lynn and Andi encourage brothers and sisters to cherish and support each other, while giving them hope through their journey in the system. As an Ashoka fellow, Lynn was recently honored by Ashoka and the City of Denver as a “change maker” working tirelessly on behalf of siblings separated in foster care.
