Mission Statement

The goal of Hope's Crossing Camp is to enrich the lives of each camper, providing life changing experiences that are fun, challenging and socially enriching while specifically tailored to each camper’s medical challenge.

Description

Hope’s Crossing is a free one week day camp. All of our campers have unique needs, disabilities and physical challenges, such as heart disease, cancer, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida and down syndrome.

Counselors are age 17-25. All counselors are hired as volunteers only, must agree to a background check and provide their own housing for the week.

Hope’s Crossing uses the beautiful facilities of Camp Loughridge in West Tulsa. All Hope’s Crossing campers participate in activities such as swimming, canoeing, archery, basketball, arts & crafts and even a ropes course specifically designed for children with disabilities under the guidance of a certified ropes instructor.

Space is limited to 45 campers per session and applications for campers and volunteers are at www.hopescrossingcamp.org. Camp is for children ages 9-15. Each camper has a Counselor specifically trained to meet the camper’s particular needs for all five days. Our Counselors insure the most enjoyable summer camp experience.

Hope’s Crossing Counselors are all VOLUNTEERS. They are high school students, college students, and young adults. All counselors receive training in camp safety, group dynamics, discipline needs, and the physical, social, and spiritual needs of children. In addition, each counselor is prepared for their assigned camper’s specific disability and individual needs.

Hope’s Crossing is FREE for every camper.
