Signs Of Hope Camp 2020
August 9 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
On August 9th, we will be hosting a single day, jam-packed, activity-filled event for all returning campers.
Signs of Hope Camp is traditionally an overnight summer camp lasting 5 days and 4 nights. Our faith-based program emphasizes wholesome exercise and the building of positive memories. Each day will include a host of exciting activities including swimming, ropes courses, bible club activities, and much more, with a very low ratio of campers to counselors. Children will be encouraged at every turn to exhibit good attitudes toward their family and peers while having as much fun as possible!
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, there are very specific restrictions on recreational outdoor camps in Santa Cruz County. Because of this, we are unable to host an overnight event this year. But, we are still looking forward to spending a day at camp with your campers!
However, we will continue to follow the updated CDC guidelines and let you know if anything changes, or if we need to cancel by August 1st.

Frequently Asked Questions
The entire program costs a little over $10,000 in total. Thanks to the generosity of our counselors and supporters, the camp is FREE for all campers to attend. If you would like to donate to your campers scholarship fund or ask your church to partner in scholarshiping campers please donate on behalf of Signs Of Hope Camp.
The health and safety of our campers, volunteers, and staff are of the utmost importance! Campers will be organized into stable groups of 8 campers with 2 counselors (stable meaning that campers are with the same group and interacting with the same staff member the entire day). There will be no blending of groups for activities or meals.
Know that we as a camp will also be implementing new health and safety practices to protect each camper, their families, and the surrounding community. New policies mean pick-up and drop-off procedures, as well as the day of schedule, will look different. Please prepare yourself and your camper for a distinct camp experience from years past.
Due to interaction limitations and restrictions, there will not be any transportation provided to and from Mission Springs Frontier Ranch. We will provide you with directions to the camp, where we will have an on-campus registration, as well as specific instructions.
Your child will need to be prepared for the warm summer days as well as a chilly evening in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Please be sure to pack good outdoor closed-toed shoes and a warm sweatshirt. Download the What To Bring Checklist to ensure that your child is well equipped for camp.
