  • A youthful spirit, we encourage our counselors to participate in all camp activities

Mission Statement

Camp CADI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to breaking the silence of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA). Camp CADI is the first of its kind, created specifically to meet the unique needs of young girls whose lives have been traumatized by CSA. In company with their peers, girls discover the power of community as they enjoy typical camp experiences, expressive arts and a mentor program that lays a foundation for trusting relationships with adults. Friendships are formed, painful emotions are released, coping skills are learned, and girls leave with a new sense of empowerment.

Description

When children are sexually abused, their childhood is stolen. Our most important mission at Camp CADI is to give each girl the opportunity to experience the simple joys of childhood again. Founded in 2005 by Amy Barth, Camp CADI fosters and promotes healing for girls ages 7 to 17 years old who have been sexually abused.

Survivors of sexual abuse often look to unhealthy ways of coping with their abuse at first, which is why it is so essential to start healing from their trauma as early as possible. Girls traumatized by sexual abuse often blame themselves for the abuse, but at Camp CADI, they realize that they are not alone. Surrounded by other girls who have experienced similar abuse gives each camper a sense of community that they have never felt before.
