Camp Expansion


Prisoners’ children live everywhere! If God calls you to form a camp for prisoners’ children, k2l wants to encourage you and share what we have learned to help you get started.

For her Doctoral Thesis, our founder, Rev. Diane Parrish and the Board of Directors’ put into motion our ten-year dream to expand Camp Hope to other geographical areas. So, when former Camp Hope Georgia volunteer Sandy’s family was relocated to New Jersey, Sandy felt God calling her to start a camp for prisoners’ children in New Jersey. This was clearly God at work and answered the prayers of our Director, the Board and Sandy and her team.

Recently, kidz2leaders helped Camp Hope New Jersey host their first summer camp for prisoners’ children. Camp Hope Georgia provided training for the New Jersey team and also sent a team of start up volunteers to help them get their first ever Camp Hope New Jersey off and running.  Their first camp hosted 12 campers and twenty-four volunteers.  We found it interesting that when Camp Hope Georgia began in the summer of 2000, they hosted 13 campers.

Join us in praying for the continued success of Camp Hope New Jersey; that they will continue to grow and prosper for years to come!
