Hope Hill is starting a new adventure of establishing Camp at Hope Hill on the main campus in Hope, KY. Jon Perry, long-time Kentucky camp director, has been engaged to help bring the new camp to life using the best expertise of the camping industry and spirit.
Board Chair, Kaye Leighton, had this to say:
"We see this campus as a gift from God that has been placed in our hands to further the Kingdom of God. In the near future, Camp at Hope Hill will be a place where all children can come for a camp experience while learning skills."
Ruby is Camp Hope Hill's golden-doodle. She is going through training and will be an emotional support animal for those youth who may struggle at camp.

Our location offers privacy and safety, in surroundings of natural beauty, with a limited number of residents at any given time. Experience has taught us that keeping our groups small and intimate results in dramatically better outcomes for sustainable healing and personal growth. Ten to twelve adolescents live in the same cottage and spend all day together—attending class, eating meals, and participating in activities as a group.
Each cottage includes a community room, bedrooms, bathrooms, showers, a kitchen, laundry room, and an office for the counselors.
Group therapy, life skills activities, homework and free time all take place in a cottage community room during afternoons and weekends. There is also plenty of outdoor space for recreation activities, group activities, picnics, etc.
