Camp Hope is a partnership between Kidder Creek Camp, Mount Hermon, Inc., and the Alliance for HOPE International (formally National Family Justice Center Alliance). This partnership focuses on providing children who are victims of family violence with an opportunity to build relationships with other children who share similar experiences, and to provide them with a safe, fun, and engaging camping experience so they can just be children.
