Camp Mariposa

Club Member Services

Camp Mariposa is a year-round addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth aged 9-18 affected by the substance use disorder of a family member. Camp Mariposa builds knowledge, life skills, confidence and provides an opportunity for youth to connect with peers and caring adult mentors at transformational weekend camps every other month for a year or more. Additional social and educational activities are offered for youth, alumni and their families throughout the year. All Camp Mariposa activities are provided free of charge.

At Camp Mariposa, youth are empowered to:

  • Connect with friends facing similar situations
  • Develop trusting relationships with adult mentors
  • Reduce feelings of isolation and guilt
  • Accept that addiction is a disease
  • Build confidence and critical life skills
  • Have fun
"Camp has helped me so much. I have learned that I am not alone and that I'm not the only one with my family's problem. I have learned how to cope with my anger and depression. I know now that I did not cause the problem and I cannot cure it." -Rowan, age 12
