Camp Hope

Camp HOPE America – Utah is an evidence-based camping and mentoring program focusing on children and teens exposed to domestic violence. Our mission is to give youth a brighter future by creating pathways to hope and healing. What makes Camp HOPE America – Utah special is the trauma-informed lens from which the program was developed. At Camp HOPE America - Utah, we praise campers for the person that they are becoming; seeing their character for who they are and not what they have accomplished. Our goal is to provide a year-round program where youth can feel safe, cared for, seen, heard, and encouraged. Camp HOPE America – Utah is composed of a week of camp, supported by year-round activities.
