Get a stone on our Hopetown Pathway


Dear Hopetown Friends, Family, and Past and Present Staff,

For years, campers and parents alike have asked how their child can leave his or her mark on Camp Hopetown.  That idea began to come to fruition last summer with a few that had words such as "be", "rock", and "refuge".   These are a personal reminder of the growth and commitments that campers made this summer.  We have decided, however, that we'd also like to have a much more visible way for past, present and incoming campers and staff to leave their mark, or name, at Hopetown.  We're continuing our summer camp theme by installing a permanent stone walkway down the steep hill toward the lake.

Many of you heard about this last fall in our mailer, but we wanted to give you another opportunity as we will be installing the path in March.  We would like to give you a chance to donate $250 for a commemorative stone.  Your child's name and time at Hopetown will, then, be engraved into a stone to be remembered by you and your well as many other's who will walk their own path at Hopetown.

If you are interested, please reply by March 15th.  Let us know how you would like your stone engraved:  name, years at Hopetown, if you were an intern that can be placed on it, as well.  Your camper will, in turn, receive a postcard telling them of your gift to remember their time at camp.  

You are also welcome to donate any amount in honor of a staff member or intern from the summer and they will receive a card letting them know of your kind gift.

We are grateful for you and your part in making Hopetown all that it is!

The Daystar Staff
