Camp Hope - Create Play


As the milestone 60th season of Camp Hope comes to a close, The Arc of Essex County is delighted to share with you an update on the status of the Create Play Capital Campaign. The generous support of individual and foundation donors have brought the campaign total to $84,500!  While the majority of the renovations will take place over the next 6-8 months, The Arc was able to install the adjustable height backboards and new basketball court for the campers to enjoy this summer - and enjoy it they did!

With your help, we can reach our $250,000 goal and complete all of the outlined projects prior to the start of the 2017 camp season. The Create Play Capital Campaign focuses on the revitalization of campground recreation spaces and the addition of new recreational amenities. For a complete list of projects please click here. These newly created and enhanced spaces will provide the perfect backdrop for future summers packed with joyful memories. 

Will you make an investment today and help us make this vision a reality?
