2023 Opportunities

Our Family Program

CIC connects families who have been impacted by incarceration to free summer camps and enrichment opportunities for youth. These programs are run by the YMCA and other organizations across the Twin Cities. We do not run these programs! We find opportunities for families, raise money to cover the costs, and spread the word. We are a connector, bringing free and fun activities to youth who have been affected by a parent’s incarceration.

Does my kid qualify?

Camp and other free activities are for youth 17 and under who either currently have or used to have a parent in prison, in jail, on probation, or detained in immigration proceedings. The parent’s incarceration can be past or present.

Free Summer Camps

Note: Please email us at outreach@cicmn.org to learn more about registering for these camps. We are working with the camps to coordinate free registration for CIC families.

2023 Camps & Programs

Information will be posted soon.

Year-round Programming

All year long, we find free entertaining and educational activities for kids affected by a parent’s incarceration. Our goal is to encourage youth to engage in new activities, develop life skills, and increase their self-worth. Past activities include: take-home art kits, performances at Stages Theatre, and tickets to Twins games!
