Camp Hope is a positive, faith-based summer camp experience especially designed to ensure success for youth residing in foster care who have likely experienced abuse, abandonment or neglect.
Each three-day camp focuses on safety by providing a unique ratio of one counselor to every two campers. Rather than being co-ed, each camp is single-sex to promote a greater level of comfort between staff and attendees. Volunteers are vetted and trained, including a camp nurse and behavioral specialist who are available to meet the needs of campers.
Every youth is offered complete confidentiality. No volunteers will take photos, other than the camp photographer who will take pictures for individual camper photo albums. All Camp Hope promotional videos/pictures will be edited for confidentiality.
Campers explore the wilderness, enjoy waterfront activities, make crafts and participate in a low-level challenge course designed to build self-respect, teamwork, trust and communication while having fun. Through encouragement and quality time with each teen, volunteers at Camp Hope strive to give campers a sense of hope that the past doesn’t have to define the future.
