Thank you to our grantors for making the 2019 CAMP HOPE possible!!

Here is a review of 2018:

In June of 2018 we had our first Camp Hope. It was a GREAT SUCCESS! Each morning we took the teens to do a service learning project, followed by an afternoon of learning workshops, activities, guest speakers and field trips. We know from our Camp evaluations that we will expand for 2019, separate more age groups, do more physical activities and with older kids, more challenging/hands on service learning projects.
