Mission Statement

The mission 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 special camp for special kids. 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.

The purpose of this unique 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.

Hope’sCrossinguses the beautiful facilities of Camp Loughridge, nestled in 200 wooded acres 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 12 campers per session and applications are at www.camploughridge.org. Camp is for children ages 9-14. 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 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. All camp costs have been paid through the generosity of friends and donations.
