Camp HOPE is a national camping and mentoring program that is focused on children whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence. This program brings a trauma-informed lens to the camping experience. The Camp HOPE model is comprised of one week of varied camp programming, supported by year round mentoring activities through the Pathways program.
Outcomes: Camp HOPE America, a program of Alliance for HOPE International, has focused intensively on the correlations between witnessing domestic violence as a child and juvenile delinquency, adult illness, disease, and criminality. The Alliance developed Camp HOPE America specifically for children and teens impacted by domestic violence.
