Hope Shores Bible Camp + Retreat Center

Hope Shores is a place where anyone can be part of the fun and everyone is a member of the family.

Hope Shores is a place where anyone can be part of the fun and everyone is a member of the family. You’re invited to have silly amounts of both fun and rest in a place where you’ll be known by name by the end of the first day—and challenged to grow every day after. There are no pretenses here—no pressure to impress or perform. Just the chance to unplug, be yourself with other people, and let Jesus transform you.

What Matters at Hope Shores?

You Matter
We want to know you by name and for you to come exactly as you are.
Jesus Matters
Everything we do is centered on Jesus and His transforming hope.
Friendship Matters
We build intimate relationships with each other, because that’s how we grow.
Fun matters
There’s a lot to be learned in silly times together, and there’s no pressure to impress or perform.

Youth Camps

Youth camps are week-long camps for students who have completed grades 2 – 12.  From Penguins in the morning to Vespers at night, your days will be filled with fun, and laughter, good food and great friendships. Campers will learn about faith in God through counselors, meaningful talks, activities, and worship.
Scholarships

We are able to offer a limited number of reduced campership fees to those in genuine need.  Hope Shores understands that sometimes financial difficulties arise for families; we never want to turn a child away from camp.  Help us stretch our resources and please provide what you are able so that we can help as many kids as possible.  Scholarships are available for our youth camps.
