PORT ORCHARD, Wash. Viktoriya Keller likes to think she knows everything about her little sister, but she had no idea Lidya Polunets had braces.

I'm like, 'Oh my God? You got braces?, said Viktoriya, 16 when she saw her 14-year-old sister Lidya Monday at camp.

The sisters had not seen each other in four months.

Lidya lives with foster parents. Viktoriya was recently adopted. They're two of the 97 siblings taking part in Camp to Belong in Kitsap County.

The camp reunites brothers and sisters separated by adoptions or by assignments to foster families.

While they're here they get to actually learn what it's like to live with a brother or sister, said camp director April Van Gesen.

The camp is run by Foster Family Connections in collaboration with Children's Administration. Counselors are all volunteers.

There are 8 camps across the country and one in Australia.
