Foster Love Project

Foster & Adoptive Family Retreat Volunteer

We are thrilled and excited to present our first annual retreat for foster & adoptive families! Retreat weekend will be May 17-19, 2019 at the beautiful Camp Kon-O-Kwee in Beaver County. 

Many foster & adoptive families are walking difficult challenges as they navigate the complexities of foster care and adoption. We hope this retreat will be a time of respite and relaxation for our families. 

Many of these families also have their hands very full! It is our hope to bring along enough volunteers to help ease some of the parenting challenges throughout the weekend. 

All volunteers will need to share their Criminal History and Child Abuse Clearances. 

We are looking for up to 12 volunteers who will be willing to come and stay for the entire weekend. Your meals and lodging will be included. We can't guarantee blissful sleep. :) 

Please note that on the sign up, it does not allow us to specify multiple days, but if you are signing up to be a Weekend Warrior, you are committing to come Friday, 3PM - Sunday at noon. 


Friday, May 17, 3:00PM - Sunday, May 19, 12:00PM

We'll ask you to assist families at mealtimes, bedtimes and playtimes as well as be available to help with specific tasks throughout the weekend. This role will be invaluable for our families and we couldn't be more grateful to those of you who are willing to give of your weekend to serve these families. 


Saturday, May 18, 6:00-10:00PM

On Saturday night, we are planning a special time for the adults to hang out together without kids. We will be hosting a movie night for the kids and ask that the volunteers will be there to watch the kids during that time. We'll then ask for you to be available to assist families in getting kids ready for bed before heading home. 


Friday, May 17, Noon-3:00PM for set up. ( A few meetings to plan ahead of time.) 

We are looking for a few fantastic decor volunteers to plan the space and decorate for us on Friday from noon-3pm. 


We are looking for 3 professional photographers who would be willing to sign up for one of three slots to capture events happening throughout the weekend. 


We will be holding an (optional) worship service on Sunday morning for any families that will be missing church. We are looking for a few musicians to come and lead a time of singing. We will help you plan the service. 


You incredible volunteers are going to make a huge difference in aiding our families throughout the weekend. We couldn't be more grateful!
