BUDDY

Our buddies and the campers are the heart of Camp Hope. Camp Hope is unique in that it provides one-on-one care. A buddy is paired with a camper and takes sole responsibility of that individual.

If you are a rising high school junior (at the time of camp) or college student, you are eligible to apply for a buddy position at Camp Hope.
