CAMP HOPE TEXAS

For contributions to the Mayors Challenge please scroll down. For any other Children's or Camp contribution please use the Donate button above and select your designation accordingly.  Thank you!

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.

Camp Hope Texas is proudly affiliated with Camp Hope America.

2018 Mega-Mayor Marathon Challenge Benefiting Camp Hope Texas

2016: FIRST, THERE WAS AN INVITATION...
Burleson Mayor Ken Shetter invites Kennedale Mayor Brian Johnson to participate in the Be Healthy Burleson 5K. Mayor Shetter to Mayor Johnson: “You kicked my butt.” Mayor Johnson to Mayor Shetter: “Not possible. I was never behind you.”

2017: THEN, THEY RAISED THE STAKES...
Mayor Johnson pledges $500 to Camp Hope Texas if Mayor Shetter can pick up the pace. He is happy to pay up when Mayor Shetter “smashes the 9 minute barrier.”

2018: NOW, THEY’VE LOST THEIR MINDS...
On March 10, 2018, Mayors Johnson and Shetter take their friendly competition to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Washington, D.C.

One mayor will bring honor and glory to his city. 
One will come in second.
But with your help, the kids of Camp Hope Texas will be WINNERS!
