The purpose of Hope’s Haven is to introduce abused and neglected children to the life-changing and healing reality of Jesus Christ and to help equip them to have meaningful, productive lives. We do this through a back-to-nature, fun-filled camping experience.
All campers are wards of the court, and most are living in group or foster homes. Hope’s Haven provides these precious children an opportunity to meet the Lord through an outdoor camping experience designed especially for them.
The campers hear about Jesus’ love through worship, Bible study, verse memorization, time spent with camp Mentors, and lots of FUN! Activities include hiking, crafts, swimming, games and much more.
The camp week is held at Camp Swatara in Bethel, Pa, and the Sr. High Retreat is help at Central Oak Heights in Milton, PA. The camper to counselor ratio is 2 to 1, with only 24 children per week, creating a safe environment and the ability to provide much needed attention. Each child is invited back each year until they graduate from high school.
The entire camping experience is provided at no charge to the child or agency and is funded by churches, individuals and groups that support the mission of Hope’s Haven.
Hope’s Haven is a Christian, nonprofit organization and is not affiliated with any church or denomination.
