About Day Camps
HopeWood Connect combines the best of outdoor ministries and congregational ministries to bring camps to you. Your congregation can experience all the fun and excitement of summer camp by sponsoring your own week-long day camp utilizing HopeWood Outdoors camp counselors! This is an excellent faith-building experience for your youth, as well as an effective outreach program to your neighborhood.
