Camp Hope provides a safe space for the victims of trauma and post-traumatic stress to experience healing.
over 1,348 Veterans have graduated from the program.
The intensive residential program at Camp Hope aims to provide a more comprehensive peer support and mentoring based healing for those who need more than our Warrior Groups can provide.
Camp Hope is broken up into four separate phases. Each phase is geared to prepare the Veteran mentally for the work they will do throughout the healing process. This includes behavior modification, emotional control, implementing faith, addiction, anger management, etc. The curriculum also includes parenting classes, relationships, and family reintegration.
Supporting the PTSD Foundation of America allows the community to be part of the hope and healing taking place here.
