Fall Family Day at Zoo Atlanta
We had a fantastic time hosting Camp Hope families for a fun day at Zoo Atlanta to celebrate the end of summer and kick off the school year. We had the largest turnout ever with 200 campers and family members in attendance. This has become a favorite activity, so look for details in 2020 for next year’s event!
Toria Peterson, Family Support Manager, did a great job organizing the event.
If you are a Camp Hope family in need of a food assistance, please call the office at (770) 977-7751 and speak to Toria Peterson.
Twice a year, we host overnight retreats for any Camp Hope camper and their families from a Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. These retreats are designed to allow campers to share a shortened version of their Camp Hope experience with their relatives, and it also serves as a weekend of fun, respite, and bonding for the family as a whole. Our first Family Retreat was held February 22-24 and was a great success.
If your child attends Camp Hope during the summer, the child and a parent/guardian are invited to our Hope4Christmas celebration! This event will be held on Saturday morning, December 14 and is an exciting reunion for campers, counselors, staff, and volunteers. Guests enjoy lunch, crafts and games, a Christmas message, and a chance to learn about the next year’s activities. Attendees also receive a camper Christmas gift, a Kroger certificate, a grocery box, a gas card, and various other fun or helpful items. Specific details and registration will be posted in November.
