Camp HOPE America is the first, evidence-based, camping and mentoring initiative in the United States to focus on children exposed to domestic violence. The first Camp HOPE started in 2003, under the umbrella of the San Diego Family Justice Center. This model has been launched throughout the country in communities operating Family Justice Center’s.

The Guilford County Family Justice Center held our first Camp HOPE August 13-18, 2017 at Camp Weaver. Camp HOPE was a tremendous success! Throughout the week campers, staff, and volunteers experienced the transformational power of hope that is fostered when children who have experienced trauma can be in relationship with one another and learn new pathways for healing.
