Their Mission:

Camp Hope has a purpose higher than just keeping kids entertained during the summer. The main mission and the driving force behind every decision that is made at Camp Hope is to grow so many Children and Youth into Christ-likeness that our culture is dramatically impacted for the glory of God.

  1. Thank you for sharing about Camp Hope. We wish it was near our place so that the kids can join. It is nice to know that there are a lot of activities included in the camp. My son would be thrilled to join archery.

    1. You are welcome. I hope that one day, someone can open up a free camp ministry in your area. So where are you located, if you don’t mind me asking. Thanks very much for visiting and commenting.
