Camp Hope 2020 is a hybrid of virtual and onsite activities. We had a maximum of 12 campers on- site in the morning and 12 campers onsite in the afternoon. Simultaneous to the onsite camper activities, the remote virtual campers took place. The groups then rotated mid-day. All campers were dropped off and picked up curbside, so parents did not have to get off their car, only the camper. Prior to exiting the vehicle, an adult guardian answered COVID-19 health related questions as a health measure and both campers and staff were required to wear masks provided by the ACFJC.
Coming together for two weeks at Camp Hope, we gave our youth an environment for summer fun and the tools to support and develop their dreams. In addition, Camp Hope 2020 provided campers an opportunity to build relationships with other children with similar experiences, to provide them with a safe, fun and engaging camping experience so they can just be kids.
