Volunteer at Camp Hope this Summer!

Camp Hope is a week-long camp for children and young adults with disabilities in Ingleside, Illinois. We're looking for juniors and seniors who can be buddies. A buddy is a counselor, friend, and caretaker to a camper with special needs.

Our campers are joyful, and our buddies become selfless, giving their all to their campers. We are one of the few camps for people with disabilities with a one-to-one ratio in Illinois. Like any camp experience, campers and buddies form life-long friendships, but it's not only through shared fun, but through sacrifice and love.
