Camp Hope is located on a hillside overlooking Little Silver Lake, with 125 acres of forests, wetlands, fields and lawns.
Camp Hope has been located at its current site in Hope, NJ, since 1946.
We will be celebrating our 75th Anniversary in 2021 and we hope you'll join us !!

Sports Area and Picnic Pavilion
We have a newly updated sand volleyball court, basketball courts, 9 Square game as well as an assortment of other games available in our sports shed. Our Pavilion has many picnic tables, large grills and is the perfect spot for outdoor dining.
Our Dining Hall looks out over Little Silver and is where our summer campers enjoy their meals. It is our Hope to renovate the Dining Hall so it too can be a year round facility.
Our Swimming Pool goes from 3 feet deep to 9 feet. Campers can play basketball, volleyball or swim laps.
There are many places that we hold worship services at Camp Hope but two of the favorite spots are Upper Vespers and Lower Vespers. Upper Vespers is near the top of the hill and is hidden back in the woods. Lower Vespers is a lake side spot where the sunsets are amazing to watch.
Little Silver Lake
Little Silver Lake is the perfect spot for Canoeing, Fishing or just sitting on the dock listening to nature.
Hiking the Grounds
There is a variety of trails for hiking throughout Camp Hope.
One trail leads to Founder's Point where you are able to see the Pool/Boat House from the other side of the lake.
