This summer we are joyfully celebrating our 20th anniversary of Camp Hope! We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the community of supporters God has provided over the past two decades. We hope you will join us on November 2 at our gala event at Olde Towne Athletic Club in Marietta as we commemorate this milestone and honor our founder, Diane Parrish, and her husband Ray, for their vision, commitment and love of our children. We will celebrate with a night of dining, dancing and shopping our awesome silent auction items.

The Chattahoochee Plantation Women’s Club (CPWC) presented “Noche de Esperanza” Night of Hope benefiting Camp Hope and Kidz2Leaders at The Atlanta Country Club on February 9, 2019. The colorful Spanish-inspired evening featured a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception, special entertainment by flamenco artists and classical guitarists, live and silent auctions, followed by dinner and dancing with music by the popular Papa-Sol Band.
Kidz2Leaders is a local children’s charity committed to ending generational incarceration. They provide stability and opportunity for the children of inmates to break the cycle of incarceration, with a 99% success rate among children that graduate from their program. Camp Hope is a week-long, overnight summer camp that empowers children with the chance to build community, experience new opportunities, and find hope for their future.
“We were thrilled to raise $37,000 for Kidz2Leaders at our Night of Hope event. We sincerely appreciate our generous sponsors and amazing charity committee for a festive evening of wonderful food, dancing and celebrating,” said co-Chairs Missy Malmberg and Heather Rees.
The CPWC is grateful to all the volunteers willing to donate their time and resources to make a difference in our community. For contributions, please visit www.auctria.com/auction/nightofhope2019

Hello, Camp Hope Volunteers!
Our staff team has already jumped into the careful planning of Camp Hope 2019, and we are excited to share that this summer will mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of our ministry.
As you may know, each year we have been intentionally increasing the number of campers we are serving through Camp Hope, and we desire to continue this same growth rate throughout the next several years. In order to offer our camp experience to as many children of inmates as possible, we believe it’s necessary to slightly re-structure.
Starting in Summer 2019, we will split our Cornerstone and Leadership Training Academy campers into separate sessions of camp during three different weeks: Two weeks serving Cornerstone, and one week serving LTA. This division will allow us to provide campers with more individualized attention from our staff and volunteers, and it will allow for higher quality, age-appropriate activities if we focus on fewer children at a time.
Dates for Summer 2019 Sessions are as follows:
Leadership Training Academy: Campers ages 12-15
June 2nd-7th at Camp Twin Lakes in Warm Springs, GA – 50 campers/35 volunteers needed
Cornerstone: Campers ages 8-12
June 9th-14th at Camp Twin Lakes in Warm Springs, GA – 60 campers/40 volunteers needed
June 29th-July 3rd at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, GA – 100 campers/90 volunteers needed
We hope you will choose to volunteer again during one (or more!) of these camp sessions! Volunteer registration will open at www.kidz2leaders.org in December. Stayed turned for more details, and please contact Hope Rosenlund anytime if we can answer questions for you.
