Share the gift of camp!

Our Hope 7 Traveling Summer Camp brings 60 children daily, ages 5-13, to our beautiful state parks for physical activity, swimming, arts & crafts, social skill building, emotional learning, and good, old-fashioned summer fun.   Our programs are designed to build children up – mind, body, and spirit. A nourishing lunch and snack are provided at no charge to fuel them for the adventures of the day.

The need for quality childcare for the long summer hours is so vital, but the cost is difficult for parents to bear. In light of this, Hope 7 has maintained low family rates despite rising program costs to ensure a quality program is available to those who need it, but the need is far greater than we can handle alone.   We need your help!

Our sponsorship program is designed to cover part or all of the cost of camp. The cost per week for one child is $170. Last year, 40 children were able to attend camp with the help of sponsors like you!

If you would like to sponsor a child for camp who is in need of financial assistance, please contact Samantha Adkisson at hope7.samantha@nullgmail.com or 518-272-8029 or send a check to Hope 7 at 596 Pawling Ave, Troy.
