Campers are encouraged to believe in themselves, in others, and in their dreams.
Camp Hope Texas is a week-long overnight camping adventure for children who have been exposed to domestic violence. Campers, through a special curriculum developed around traditional camp activities, gain independence along with the skills and hope they need to break the generational cycle of violence.
Most importantly, children who typically live very stressful lives get the chance to know the simple joys of childhood. In addition to summer camp, follow up enrichment activities throughout the year give campers a chance to maintain friendships that began at camp.
Without Camp Hope Texas many children would never have the opportunity to experience summer camp and would miss their best chance to develop a healthy sense of self and hope for the future. All children deserve to have a childhood, and all children should know life doesn’t have to be filled with violence.
The vision of Camp Hope Texas is to break the generational cycle of violence by offering healing and hope to kids exposed to violence in the home.
