About Camp HOPE America

Camp HOPE America, a program of Alliance for HOPE International, is the first nationwide camping and mentoring initiative in the United States to focus on children exposed to domestic violence. Camp HOPE operates in collaboration with Family Justice Centers and community-based domestic violence and child advocacy agencies across the United States at no cost to the camper or their families.

The vision for Camp HOPE America is to break the generational cycle of family violence by offering healing and hope to children who have been exposed to the trauma and abuse of family violence. Karianne Johansen, the Founding Director of Camp HOPE America says it best: “Camp HOPE is about giving kids their childhood back.”
