Summer Sessions at Hopetown
Hopetown are Daystar's summer sessions. Almost half of the Daystar staff, plus high school leaders and college interns travel weekly with kids up to Daystar's Hopetown, located 2 hours N.W. of Nashville on Kentucky Lake. We have seven summer sessions, each five to seven days long, and grouped around grade level. There are never more than 30 campers per session, with a ratio of about three campers per leader.
Hopetown is a time to strengthen and experience what we've been talking about in groups throughout the school year. As we share during group, laugh on the boat, play in the water, and worship together we experience hope. The hearts of the kids are softened through relationship. Their faith is molded and shaped during our worship time and our executive director Melissa Trevathan's teaching each morning and evening. The strengthening comes as each child, regardless of age, sees that he or she has the ability to make a profound difference in the lives of others.
