Teen Camp is comprised of two week-long summer sessions for ages 13-19 years of age by September 1 of the current year. Each week is a co-ed camp with the females housed at one of the camp and males at the other end.  Camp starts on Sunday afternoon with registration and ends with camper pickup Sunday morning at 11:30 am. There is a registered nurse on staff for each week for the medical needs of each camper.  Each day is filled with Bible teaching, team activities, surprises and long days.  These young people are challenged concerning their daily walk with the Lord and how they will fulfill God’s will for each of their lives.

 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:

Teen Camp 1            Alan Malchuk
Teen Camp 2            Jon Glock

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.
