Camp Hope - Create Play


As phase one of construction concludes and Camp Hope opens for its 61st season, 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 an impressive $139,451!  Completed phase one projects include:

  1. New Accessible-Friendly Playground
  2. Construction of a Multi-Purpose, Outdoor Activity Pavilion
  3. Installation of a New Splash Pad Aquatic Feature
  4. New, Expanded Recreation Field
  5. A Complete Revitalization of the Existing Pool Pavilion Building
  6. New Basketball Court with Adjustable Height Backboards

With your help, there is still time to reach our $250,000 goal. The Create Play Capital Campaign focuses on the revitalization of campground recreation spaces and the addition of new recreational amenities. These newly created and enhanced spaces will provide the perfect backdrop for future summers packed with joyful memories.
