Camp HOPE

Bob Sweeney's Camp H.O.P.E. is a FREe 2 day camp for children ages 5 - 17 who have lost an immediate family member. Through the talents of Good Shepherd Hospice, Camp H.O.P.E. is professionally staffed and offers grieving kids and an accompanying caregiver the opportunity to share their feelings in a safe, fun and healthy environment. One of the many benefits for the children who attend this camp is that they will be around other children who are in similar circumstances. Currently, Camp H.O.P.E. is being offered to grieving families once a year. In addition we also host a holiday party for families given in December.
