Camp Hope seeks counselors for summer session at Rock Eagle


    A fun-filled week at camp spent with the son or daughter of an incarcerated adult may be enough to make a difference that will change the course of that child’s life.
      At least that’s what the organizers of Camp Hope believe.
      They’re looking for teens, college students and adults who are willing serve as a week-long camp counselor or day volunteer. This summer’s session is set for July 16-22 at the Rock Eagle 4-H camp in Eatonton.
      Camp Hope is designed for the rising fourth, fifth and sixth- grade children of men and women who are serving time in a federal, state or local prison system.  
      As explained on the Camp Hope website (  “Our goal is to provide plenty of food, songs and FUN - but most of all, to help these campers understand that no matter what their circumstances are, no matter what paths others in their lives have taken, that they are precious children of God with a special future of their own -- that there is HOPE!”       
      Informational meetings for first-time volunteers are planned for 7-8:30 p.m. April 18 and 1-2:30 p.m. May 1 in room B200 at Mt. Bethel UMC, 4385 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta, GA 30068. Contact Cris Hunt at 770-977-7751 or with questions.
