The mission of Camp Hope is as follows…
“Our goal is to give back to children and teens the childhood’s they have lost.

The impact of being a primary or secondary victim of domestic or sexual violence or child abuse is devastating and can have profound long-term consequences. Children exposed to trauma have been deprived of the safety and security that should be a rite of childhood. They are also at a higher risk for residual , social and behavioral impact.

Camp HOPE America is a growing national network of camps created to respond to this kind of trauma in a sensitive, therapeutic way.

Clinical research shows the Camp HOPE model helps children and teens overcome obstacles in a safe, supportive environment; improves self-esteem; and makes them more emotionally resilient.”
