The Camp Hope Experience
Many of the campers who attend say that this was the most helpful part of dealing with their grief. Some are so moved by the experience that they end up coming back to work for Wellspring long after camp is over.
But don’t just take our word for it. Hear from three brothers who attended Camp Hope after their father passed away.

Camp Hope FAQs
Wellspring provides transportation to and from camp. Campers are picked up at a designated location in Frankenmuth and returned to that same location.
All campers and staff are to be treated with dignity and respect at all times. Because we will not condone any behaviors that could cause physical and/or emotional harm, we have a “Three Strikes, You’re Out” policy. It works like this:
- Strike #1: The child’s group leader will talk to the child.
- Strike #2: Some of the child’s recreational activities will be limited.
- Strike #3: If the negative behaviors continue after the first two strikes, the next strike could involve dismissal from camp.
