Our goal is to continue to offer Camp HOPE weekends free of charge to all families. There are many ways that you can help us make that happen.

Financial Support
Fundraising is an essential part of Camp HOPE operations. Funds are raised through a variety of ways including donations through the generosity of clubs, organizations, foundations, businesses and individuals. Please consider donating as a group or individual if you are able. Camp HOPE is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization. All donations in cash and in kind are tax deductible. 

Please note: If you would like us to notify someone of your donation in memory or honor of a loved one, please email and include this information, 1) the name of the person who you are honoring and 2) the name and mailing address of the family. Thank you!











If you prefer to write a check, please make it out to Camp HOPE and mail to us at
Camp HOPE, P.O. Box 70722, Madison, WI 53707.

Things I know because of Mom:
“Always snuggle babies, whenever and wherever you can.  Bread is best when it's warm.  Traveling makes you a smarter and better person.  It's perfectly okay to call someone you love ‘Lil Bugger’ or ‘Bootsie’.  Treat your son or daughter in law well and you make your child happy.
People in all walks of life deserve your respect.  Reading is the best teacher.  There is always time for your child.
Compassion for people who are suffering, locally or far away.  How loved a smile of welcome makes a person feel."
