What Are the Dress Guidelines?

Camp Hope Dress Guidelines

How we dress DOES impact others! We are continually challenged by the world’s idea of what is “Acceptable” aren’t we? Here at Camp Hope we strive to present ourselves in a positive way by dressing modestly. Here are some guidelines that will help show honor and respect to our Lord as well as to the other campers and staff.

Modesty is so important to us here at Camp Hope that we will ask any camper to change clothes if they are not within these guidelines.

Acceptable Clothing for Females:

  • Shirts w/ min. of 2” width shoulders (no spaghetti strap/strapless tops, halters)
  • Tops should have no gaps revealing cleavage or plunging necklines
  • Shorts length- no shorter than longest finger when hanging at your side (Approx. mid thigh)
    Knit cheerleader shorts will be allowed meeting the above criteria.
  • Swimsuit that are modest one piece (no two piece or tankinis) with no cleavage visible and with modest cut for top of leg area
  • Sunday dress includes above criteria and can include: nice slacks or capris, dress-skirt length no shorter than 4” above the knee, no strapless dresses even worn w/ sweater.
  • Your FREE Camp Hope T-Shirt you will receive is totally acceptable!

Acceptable Clothing for Males:

  • Shirtless only in the cabin and when given permission and swimming
  • No visible boxers…no matter how cool they are!

How is Camp Hope Supported?

Camp Hope’s support comes through two main avenues.  About 50% comes from  camper registration fees and 50% from donations from individuals and local churches.  Camp has always welcomed gifts from believers and not solicited same from the “general public”.  If you know the Lord and would like to fellowship with camp in this way to help with general expenses or any designated gift such as camper scholarships please contact Camp Hope at 770.536.4787 or camphopega@gmail.com.
