Camp HOPE is a free weekend camp for grieving children, teenagers
and their families.
2020 Camp Weekends
May 16-17, 2020 (Cancelled due to COVID19)
October 3-4, 2020
"As the Founder and President of Camp HOPE, I have seen people’s raw grief for over 30 years. The grief we have all witnessed in this country specifically among Black and Brown people in the last several weeks is heartbreaking.
We know this pain is not new. It is time for change. People of color experience overt racism and microaggressions each and every day. We cannot accept the racial disparities we build and perpetuate. Nor can we allow for communities of color to stand alone in addressing racial injustice.
Black Lives Matter. Camp HOPE supports all who are doing the necessary work to dismantle systems of oppression and to fight against racial injustice in our communities. In the coming months, you will see this commitment translate to tangible change within our internal organizational policies and practices – ensuring Camp HOPE is truly a place where all kids and families experiencing grief can feel welcome – regardless of the color of their skin." ~Becky Kraemer Loy
Camp HOPE on Crazy Good Turns Podcast!
August 23, 2018
Earlier this summer, two Camp HOPE counselors and I were interviewed for a podcast episode on Crazy Good Turns. Hearing our own stories in this public format, has proven to be a little overwhelming for us. But we are truly happy with the result and we know that by continuing to share our stories, we are helping others know that they are not alone. Thank you to Jordan and Kristi for being brave, opening your hearts and for sharing your journey with others. I am so grateful for you and love that you are a part of Camp HOPE. And thank you to Crazy Good Turns for helping us tell the Camp HOPE story.
