Camp Hope is a worry-free weekend retreat for children living with HIV and their entire family. We are a non-disclosure camp, which means we don’t talk about HIV at camp. Instead, we focus on having fun and building bonds among families. Best of all, Camp Hope is free!

Camp Hope activities include horseback riding, swimming, arts and crafts, climbing towers, and more!

“Camp Hope is the only place that I don’t feel different.  I have to keep a big secret when I am at school and even around family members but at camp, everyone is going through the same thing as me and I can just relax, have fun, and be myself.”  -CS

“I live a stressful life and just to have three stress-free days brightens my life.  I can’t thank you enough; without this I don’t have much to look forward to.”  -CJ
