"This camp is so meaningful to our kids, who otherwise never get to participate in things like this. It has been the highlight of their year."
Invest in Youth
Research highlights factors that help youth overcome life’s challenges, and outdoor activities are at the top of the list. Outdoor programs at Camp Hope were established in response to the rise in teen mental health issues, suicides, substance abuse, and low academic performance. The camp offers nature camps, foster family camps and hands-on outdoor school. The programs focus on the key factors proven to help youth thrive. These include opportunities to learn new skills, make friends, and develop healthy relationships with caring adults. In short, the programs at Camp Hope promote wellness and build lifelong resilience in our youth.
Camp Hope strives to remove economic barriers, provide hope, and offer healthy meals to all our campers. The camp organizes bake sales and car washes to empower youth to earn money for summer camps. And with the support of donors, scholarships match their efforts and remove the financial barriers that prevent youth from experiencing camp.
Your gift of $50 supports 1 day of camp for 1 camper.
Your gift of $500 provides 10 days of camp from
March - November for one underserved youth.

Camp Hope of SW Washington (Camp Hope) is making plans to upgrade the dining patio with a covered outdoor cooking area. Your gift will help purchase a semi-permanent metal roofed gazebo, a 36” stainless steel gas griddle, stainless-steel equipment carts, food prep tables, food warmers and locked storage.
Camp Hope provided over 500 hot breakfasts and lunches during 14 days of camp in 2022 with 2/3 of the campers eligible for free and reduced lunches at school. The absence of a kitchen has constrained the camp’s ability to prepare and serve food. The camp desires to increase program offerings to include school field trips, outdoor school, after-school programs, and more summer camps. The addition of an outdoor kitchen with commercial grade kitchen appliances will dramatically improve the safety of food handling and increase capacity to prepare more meals.
Camp Hope is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity organization; therefore, your donation is completely tax-deductible, and you will receive a receipt for all your contributions for tax purposes.
