To inspire HOPE, love and joy for grieving children and families through a free camp weekend, where they’ll connect and share with those who've also experienced the pain of loss and are committed to healing, together.


Core Values and Culture

Camp HOPE is a Non-Profit organization located in Central Wisconsin that serves all grieving children ages 5-18. Camp HOPE proudly welcomes all individuals and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.


Camp HOPE is a weekend camp where children are brought together to work through the grieving process after a loved one dies. Fun is top priority and the kids learn that it’s okay to laugh and play - and that doing so is not disrespectful to the memory of the person who died. Through the weekend of fun, sharing their pain and supporting each other, the children are shown that their emotions are a normal part of grief, they are not alone, and at Camp HOPE, their pain is understood.
