Camp Hope


Camp Hope Landscape


Thank you for a GREAT Spring 2018 Camp!

Camp Hope is a free weekend camp for children, ages 6 to 17, who have experienced the loss of a significant loved one. The mission of Camp Hope is to provide a safe environment for grieving kids and teens as they share memories, make new friends, and have fun. Attending camp gives these children the opportunity to be with other children who understand their unique experience. They tend to feel less alone and can begin to develop hope for the future. Camp Hope is staffed by volunteers who have all experienced loss in their own lives. This unique perspective allows them to easily connect and help the children as they move through the grieving process. Attending Camp Hope is about sharing memories, making new friends, expressing feelings, trying new activities, having fun, receiving support, and learning that one is never alone in their grief.

Camp Hope Fundraising

Thanks to the generosity of many, attendance at Camp Hope is offered free to all children.

Donations are welcomed to help cover the costs of running Camp Hope.

What Campers and Parents Say...

“I went to Camp Hope in the fall and I can honestly say it was one of the best things I could have done to deal with my grief. Before arriving I was nervous but by the time I went to bed I didn't want to leave. I have met so many fantastic people that have helped me know that I am not alone in my experiences. I would recommend this camp to any person, within the age limit, who has ever lost anybody. Thank you Camp Hope for helping me sort out my grief and meet so many amazing people.”

--Teen Camper

“My daughter went to Camp Hope and it was such an INCREDIBLE experience for her. I am a professional in the mental health field and I would recommend the camp highly. If you know any child between the ages of 6-17 who have experienced a loss recently or years ago please recommend they attend this camp. Thank you so much Camp Hope for all you do.....”

--Mother of Camper
