Camp HOPE America is the only evidence-based camping model in the United States focused on trauma-exposed youth. For the last three years, Camp HOPE has been involved in a research study through the University of Oklahoma to measure Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and Hope levels in the lives of the campers. The trauma-informed, evidence-based curriculum has been validated and is now available for other communities to use in developing an affiliated Camp HOPE program through Alliance for HOPE International’s new Camp HOPE Affiliation Program.
Local Family Justice Centers and other multi-agency (MA) service organizations can now develop their own Camp HOPE using our evidence-based program, supported by our highly experienced team of professionals. Without a background in camping or programming, operating a camping program for trauma-exposed children can be an extremely overwhelming feat. Our affiliation process will alleviate the stress and complexity of starting a new camping program in your community and will allow local Family Justice Centers and other MA models to reap all of the benefits of camp in your community!
In partnership with Verizon, Camp HOPE America has created an Affiliation Process. Communities across the country now have the opportunity to run their own Camp HOPE with our evidence-based curriculum, technical assistance, training model, and program support. Prices vary depending on the level of affiliation. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Camp HOPE America family and changing the way that youth impacted by domestic violence and related trauma think about themselves, others, and their dreams, please contact CampHOPE@allianceforhope.com to schedule an informational phone call. We greatly look forward to speaking with you and assisting you in any way that we can to help bring the power of Camp HOPE to youth in your community.
