Leadership

Our summer staff are carefully selected, screened, and trained. Staff undergo an interview process, reference checks, criminal background checks, and participate in over 80 hours of specialized training in preparation for summer camp.  We look for college-aged staff who demonstrate a zest for life, a desire to grow in and share their Christian faith, and a joy in working with children and youth to create a Christ-centered community while seeking to achieve the stated goals of our program.

Camp Challenges

Camp programs are adventurous and may involve risk. By carefully training qualified staff, providing close supervision, strictly adhering to established safety procedures and American Camp Association (ACA) standards, and being ever alert to potential dangers, Camp Hanover aims to minimize risks while leaving the challenge in our program.

Camp Expectations of Campers

Participants must be willing to constructively and cooperatively work with staff and group members to build community and face the challenges of rustic outdoor living. Campers give up some personal freedoms so that the entire group can succeed. Group “opportunities to serve” are part of each camper’s day. Campers, if physically able, are expected to be present and involved in all group activities.

All Are Welcome

Camp Hanover welcomes persons of every race, color, sex, religion, handicap and nationality.

Accreditation

Camp Hanover remains fully accredited by the American Camp Association.

Insurance

Camp Hanover provides limited primary accident coverage. Illness insurance is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

Camperships

Limited campership funds are available for anyone who might need financial assistance. We will help find a way to make camp finanically possible for every child who wishes to attend. Please contact the camp office for more information.
