A Week-long Camp For Children of Domestic Violence to Find Fellowship, Support, and Coping Skills

Camp HOPE America is the first evidence-based camping and mentoring program for children exposed to trauma in the United States.

Our goal is to give children and teens their childhood back and help them find a pathway to HOPE.

We are looking for loving, hard-working, energetic leaders to serve as camp counselors!

The purpose of Camp HOPE is to interrupt the cycle of violence while providing a safe and fun atmosphere for kids. The counselors serve as role models and friends to their campers, teaching them tools for managing emotions, building relationships, and loving themselves.

 If this could be you, please submit an application!

“Hope is sweet-minded and sweet-eyed. It draws pictures; it weaves fancies; it fills the future with delight.”

– Henry Ward Beecher

  • Children with increased hope and resiliency can cope with negative situations and achieve future goals.
  • Higher hope children are more optimistic about the future, have stronger problem solving skills, and develop more life goals. Hopeful children are less likely to have behavior problems or experience psychological distress.
  • These children also report better interpersonal relationships and higher school achievement success in the areas of attendance, grades, graduation rates, and college going rates.
