Your voice is needed, because there’s a child out there who has never been to summer camp.
It’s often said, “Camp Hanover is one of the best kept secrets.” The experience a child can only get here is too important to be kept a secret. The opportunity to practice being the person God created them to be. The chance to be loved, and practice sharing God’s love with others. It’s priceless, and it transforms a child’s life. Help get more kids to camp by telling the world – your friends, your coworkers, your neighbors — about the power of camp. Ask them to join you. Ask them to send their child to camp. And when YOU get asked, “What does camp mean to you?” or “What’s your favorite camp memory?” go ahead and share YOUR story. Sometimes, that’s all it takes.
Your time is needed, because there’s much to do before campers arrive.
Taking care of Camp Hanover’s 620-plus acres and 40-plus buildings has always been a team effort. Every year, as winter turns to spring, and spring turns to summer, countless volunteers step up to the plate and prepare Camp Hanover to welcome campers once again. Trails need to be cleared. Longhouses need to be spruced up. Recreation fields need to be mowed. Woodchips need to be spread around challenge course elements. It can’t be done without you.
