Typically, Camp Hope is hosted at Camp Lael, located in Lapeer, MI. However, Camp Hope 2022 will be held at Memorial Park in Frankenmuth. It's our strong hope that we will return to our 3-day camps beginning in 2023.
Camp Hope 2022 is a 1-day camp. It will be from 8:00 am-4:00 pm at Memorial Park in Frankenmuth, MI.
