Our Promise to You

As a volunteer for Signs of Hope Camp, you will have the opportunity to care for children in foster care while they experience all the wonders of camp.  To support your role, we promise each volunteer that we will…

  • Into-The-WoodsPrepare your mind, heart and hands so that your soul is fed while you serve the needs of others. Professional trainings will be held in advance of camp to enable you to better understand and respond to the emotional and behavioral challenges of children who have suffered deeply from abuse or neglect;
  • Care for your physical and spiritual well-being throughout your journey. Our Prayer Team will communicate regularly to encourage you.  There will be time for personal and group devotions for reflection and renewal during each day at camp.
  • Keep you involved with opportunities to support foster children and their families throughout the year. Help One Child offers year-round programming and opportunities to work hands-on with foster children.  For a list of upcoming opportunities, click here. Help a child heal through your committed support and care.
  • Provide support and resources as you fundraise for camp. Some are called to serve by being the hands and feet of Jesus and others are called to provide the resources. It is our responsibility that no one be left out! It can be easy to reach your goal if you use a biblical approach. We have several tools and ways you can engage your community in support of your mission to give the gift of camp to a foster child ($500).
