Home School Camp is a week-long summer session that is for ages 7-19 years of age by September 1 of the current year. This is a co-ed session with the females housed in cabins on one end of camp and males housed on the other end.  Camp starts on Monday afternoon with registration and ends with camper pickup Saturday morning. There is a registered nurse on staff for each week for the medical needs of each camper.  There are two Bible study sessions per day along with cabin devotions.  Each day includes team activities and free time in the afternoon for the campers to swim, canoe, play in the recreation room and many other activities.  Bible teachers are chosen for their ability to communicate Scripture clearly and simply for the campers to understand.  Camp Hope’s desire is to present the gospel of Jesus Christ in a clear and simple way and to encourage campers to grow in their walk with the Lord.

 Memory Verses

The memory verses have been put together to show a camper their need of salvation and to help Christians grow in their spiritual walk with the Lord. The verses to be memorized are based on the number of years a child has been a camper at Camp Hope and completed a patch. If this is the first year a child has been to camp then they would memorize the first year verses, second year of attending camp second year verses and so on.

Patch Verses

Speakers:

Jr Campers: Nate Thomas
Teen Campers: Mike Donahue

New Camper Discounts

New Camper Discount There will be a $25 discount to each new camper for their first week of camp for Home School, Junior & Girls camps.. A refund will be sent by the end of the summer season.

New Camper Referral for Home School, Junior & Girls Camps An existing camper will receive a $25 discount for each new camper they bring for a week of Home School, Junior or Girls Camps. The existing camper can bring multiple new campers and receive a discount for each new camper. Once the new camper has been registered then Camp Hope will issue a refund to the camper who brought the new camper by the end of the summer season.

Team Competition

Campers are divided into teams at the beginning of the week. The teams compete throughout the week to see who can earn the most points. The most points can be earned by memorizing the daily and weekly verses, answering questions from the previous Bible lesson and keeping a notebook through the week. Other points are earned by winning games and other activities that are set up by the Activity Director.

Camp Staff

Many of the staff of Camp Hope were campers in the past as children and now desire to minister to the children that are now coming to camp. Counselors are chosen for their spiritual maturity and the ability to interact with the campers. New staff must turn in two references. One is a personal reference that is not a family member and the second reference must come their church’s local leadership. The Program Director will also talk with the potential staff member to determine where they stand spiritually, how their walk with the Lord has been and their ability to present the gospel in a very clear way according to biblical standards.

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.
