We bring you greetings from New Hope Camp & Conference Center. This is an exciting time to be involved in our ministry. It is our mission to provide a space for our guests to grow in their relationship with God, themselves, and others. With summer camp and the growth of After School program, children continue to use our facilities all year long. We grant scholarships to many children in our community and have the honor of providing a loving and safe place for them to interact with God’s creation. This is a wonderful space for all ages and groups to gather and retreat from the day-to-day world. We are indeed a place apart.
A huge accomplishment for 2015 was the completion of the Fleming Hall renovation. The meeting space, caterer’s kitchen, ADA compliant bathrooms, and expansive deck are welcome improvements. We continue to serve the unique needs of our diverse community and feel blessed that they can continue to enjoy our facilities. The new Fleming will help us expand the retreat side of our ministry. If you have not seen Fleming lately, please come out and look at what your generous donations have accomplished.
As much as we have accomplished, there is more to do. Our vision continues with a desire to be known as the “Camp for the Arts”. We want the ability to have artists-in-residence who would work with both children and adults in their chosen medium. Our area is brimming with artists and we believe incorporating this concept in this beautiful natural setting would be a wonderful addition to our ministry.
To continue our ministry and current programs, these are our most pressing needs:
- a building where we can better facilitate our after school program;
- a building to replace the current office space; and
- a building to replace the current Arts and Crafts building.
In the past, it has been only through the financial support of many that have made our growth possible. Would you help us to continue our ministry and current programs and help facilitate new growth with your financial gift? Please make a tax-deductible donation to New Hope Camp & Conference Center, Inc., so we can continue to serve our community of which we are a vital part.
