What Others Say About Camp Hanover

There are so many things you wish for your child. To be accepted for whoever they are and have the freedom and encouragement to grow into that is certainly high on that list. At Camp Hanover, ‘all are welcome’ and it’s not just words. They live it out in the care and love they provide for everyone who visits.

Father of an Elementary School Camper

We were blessed to be a part of such a profound ministry this summer! Camp had a wonderful impact on my child’s character. You are a blessing in our lives and we are grateful to have the opportunity to show others the grace he received at Camp Hanover!

Mother of a High School Camper

There is nothing more incredible than watching your children go out into the world and come back changed—stronger, more confident, and self-aware. I am blessed to have sent our three to Camp Hanover for many summers and have seen how each has found belonging, identity, and purpose through life lessons and relationships found at Camp.

Parent

I have been singing Camp Hanover’s praises since my child came home. Camp was a turning point in shaping who he is, gaining confidence and realizing his strengths.

Mother of a High School Camper

I can’t say enough about how good it was to see counselors playing with the campers, being silly with them in appropriate ways. Loved watching the counselors dive into the mud slide with the campers! Healthy, active, outdoors, silly when appropriate, listening when needed, this is the experience I want my children to have!
