EACH SUMMER WE BRING OVER 100 COLLEGE STUDENTS TO SERVE AT OUR 2 SUMMER CAMPS IN CONNECTICUT. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO MODEL CHRIST IN ALL YOU DO, INVEST IN KIDS AT EVERY MOMENT, AND WALK ALONGSIDE CAMPERS ON THEIR FAITH JOURNEY, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO APPLY!
WHY CAMP HOPE
We know there are many things you could do with your summer….internships, jobs, summer school, etc. We understand. However, time is short and the world is fleeing, so at Camp Hope, we believe that there is no better way to spend your summer than investing in things that are eternally significant.
At Camp Hope, you will be stretched and challenged in new ways. You will grow in your relationship with others as you live in community with other like-minded summer staff and form friendships that last a lifetime. You will learn more about yourself as you serve kids and families for God’s glory. You will learn how to do ministry with others as you are invested into God’s Word. Most importantly, you will grow in your relationship with the Lord as you experience a love here that is supernatural. Your eyes and heart will be opened to His goodness, His faithfulness, and His glory here at Camp Hope!
