Welcome to Camp Hope!
If you are reading this, you are wondering if Camp Hope is right for your congregation. Generally, congregation should take on a new ministries when:
1. The values of the new ministry fit within the overall mission of the congregation
2. The Pastoral leadership, elected leadership (Congregational Council) and people most affected by the ministry (families and youth) are interested and willing to carry out the mission
3. The congregation will gladly tweak, delete or align existing ministries as needed to make this a success
If you answered yes to these general points, you are ready to take this Congregational Assessment. It has been our experience in the last 20 years that congregations that can honestly answer yes to all 7 areas represented in these questions will have the best experience hosting Camp Hope. We know Camp Hope is not right for every congregation, yet we know that for those that fully invest, Camp Hope is one of the most significant outreach ministries to the community as it effectively grows Biblically literate children and youth.
