Camp Hope
A place to Belong
2011 Dates: (to be determined)

Camp Hope is a camp designed for children who are survivors of the suicide of a parent or silbling. Camp Hope is a safe, open enviroment where kids can embrace their love of horses and nature and grow emotionally in a nurturing enviroment while bonding with new friends and camp counselors who understand the turmoil and questions that are left when a loved one completes suicide.

Camp Hope is different from other camps for grieving children because suicide is often kept quiet and the loved ones left can feel shame and social stigma and children may blame themselves. Also children who have lost parents to suicide are more likely to take their own lives so it is even more critical that these children find a place to belong. Lost Creek's Camp Hope provides a safe haven and campers leave with new skills to help them cope with their loss and continue to rebuild their lives.

These special campers especially benefit from the healing power of being with a horse. Horses are our best teachers and can help children reconnect with their own feelings while allowing them to grieve and heal.

Lost Creek's Camp Hope accepts donations to help send a child to camp. Families are often left financially distressed after the suicide of a parent and it is the goal of Lost Creek Ranch to make this Camp Hope free to as many children as possble. Can you or your group help sponsor a camper? email our Board of Directors:
