Camp HOPE for Kids
October 8-9, 2022
Camp HOPE is a Wisconsin-based free weekend bereavement camp, open to grieving youth ages 5-18.
Adult family members are welcome to join our adult camp, which is hosted at the same time as the youth camp. Registration for Camp HOPE this fall (October 8-9th) is now open! There is no cost to attend.
Through playing, sharing, and being together in a camp setting with peers and staff who know the pain, the children and teenagers realize that the emotions they feel are a normal part of grief.
What is happening to them happens to others everywhere, and at Camp HOPE, their pain is understood and shared.
Campers will be captivated by the picturesque setting of the campsite, which
features individual cabins, dining, and shower facilities.
Each camper will be housed in small groups of similar-aged campers with three or more volunteer
counselors. The camp is a 400-acre wildlife refuge with a 45-acre private lake that provides each
camper with ample opportunity to enjoy nature.
The Wisconsin Lions Camp is within easy driving distance from all parts of the state.
Camp HOPE rents the Wisconsin Lions Camp (3834 County Road A, Rosholt, WI) in central Wisconsin,
two miles east of Rosholt and sixteen miles northeast of Stevens Point.
