CAMOM membership includes access to all of our monthly meetings, support groups, family events, playgroups, and parenting groups. Members also have the opportunity to participate in our private online Facebook group for round-the-clock camaraderie and advice. Someone's bound to be online, even at 3am in the morning! Parental support is strongly provided by our Sunshine & Philanthropy committees along with many other benefits below:
Events: CAMOM's monthly membership meetings gear towards topics that are relevant to parenting multiples and/or self-care. Our new Rays of Sunshine support group meetings are an additional safe space to share your struggles and learn about coping strategies for raising multiples. Check out more information at CAMOM Events.
Parental Support: For members who have recently had births, CAMOM organizes meal support and Big Sister mentors helps new parents navigate the rocky terrain of life with multiples. Additional compassionate support is also provided for mothers on bedrest, NICU families, and other families who are experiencing bereavement, health issues, or other personal challenges. CAMOM also maintains a closet of preemie-sized clothing that members are welcome to borrow for their littlest family members, as well as a list of community organizations and contact information should families require other assistance. More information is available on our member-only resources.
Consignment Sales: CAMOM members have the opportunity to sell lightly-used toys, clothes, and gear at our semi-annual consignment sales during the Spring and Fall. Members may also shop early and get first pick of what's available at each sale.
Discounts: There are a number of club discounts associated with being a member of CAMOM including Maryland Zoo, BJs Wholesale, Enterprise Car Rentals. You also gain early access and/or discounted entry fees to other consignment sales by multiples' organizations in the area. More information is available on our member-only resources.
Other Resources - Coming Soon!: Pantry of diapers and formula (unopened and in-date) for members and a lending library of helpful parenting books for members to borrow at their leisure.
Membership costs $30 annually. Your membership must be up to date to participate in any of our programs.
