Camp Hope San Diego is looking for people who have a passion for helping children and getting hands-on experience in teaching skills to overcome adversities due to domestic violence. We offer lots of leadership opportunities and track volunteer hours needed for different school programs.

Camp hope runs a year-round mentorship program that involves participation 1-2 times a week. We go on adventures and plan events for the campers to engage, and build relationships with one another and staff. Events like kayaking, beach trips, hiking, ice skating, treasure hunts, and more!

We also have a summer camp that is run 3 weeks out of the summer. We instill the "Science of Hope" into the program to teach kids skills to see that there is a hopeful future for all of them. The goal is to stop the repeated cycle of domestic violence and set them up for success.
