Each year 1 month before camp we gather all of our campers and their families together for a fun activity. This gives all of the campers a chance to start making camp friends, and the families the opportunity to meet each other.

Visitors and Volunteers
Come join us at the HOPE CO ReSale store where we serve the community by providing for SWFL children in foster care. We even get to cuddle some of the kiddos occasionally.
We are so grateful to all of the wonderful businesses that love to partner with HOPE to provide for the needs of the local community.
