Summer Camp 2019
Summer Camp 2019 is finally here! Welcome back Terri Crum as our Program Director! Terri has been apart of the Camp New Hope family for over 20 years and still knows how to give our campers the very best camp experience!
We kicked off the summer with special music guests like Bryan "Dunny" Dun, Jimmy McBride and Billy Belleau playing great music during camper check-ins and around the camp fire. The campers have enjoyed lots of ice-cream, brownies, and all things sweet in the kitchen. The Scovill Zoo came and showed us the coolest animals in the zoo! There's so much more to come this season, so stay tuned!
Thank you to everyone who supported our 2019 Smile Campaign. The Smile Campaign was established to provide scholarships for campers to attend Camp New Hope Summer Camp and Respite Program.Due to generous givers like you we were able to award over 60 scholarships this season! Thank you all so much for "Having a Heart and Giving a Smile."

Ameren Illinois has helped camp through a grant to be able to update some much needed lighting with newer equipment/bulbs, and timers/sensors for outdoor lighting. This will help to reduce camp's monthly electrical costs in the future. Watch the video about what they did at camp. It's also a great overview of Camp New Hope's grounds.
