Camp HOPE serves children ages 6 -12 with parents or guardians who have received domestic violence relief services from FSC. Based on a national evidence-based program, Camp HOPE aims to break the cycle of family violence by teaching and empowering children impacted by such abuse to develop healthy relationships, communicate effectively, and make decisions to promote their physical and emotional health.
The Camp HOPE program is focused on helping children and teens find a pathway to HOPE through fellowship, support, and coping skills. When children have increased hope and resiliency, they are better equipped to cope with negative situations, they have stronger problem-solving skills and develop more life goals.
Camp HOPE provides a six-day overnight camping experience at a residential retreat center and monthly reunions for family support. All activities have been virtual or outdoors during COVID.
