Philanthropic supporters like you champion our kids by providing $300 individual scholarships for hundreds to attend our summer camp, which requires additional staffing, programming tools and resources like nutritious snacks, bottled water, and lunch.
Campers spend four hours each day, 5 days a week – which translates into 120 minutes of smiles like the ones you see here …
Three hundred dollars = 1,200 minutes of smiles for a kid in crisis!
Eighty kids from partner nonprofits like Durham and Raleigh Rescue Missions, Boys and Girls Club, and Salvation Army, run, fish, paint, hike, ride horses, and learn about the love of Jesus Christ all week on the beautiful grounds of the ranch, because of people like you.
And, most importantly, Hope Reins Summer Camp is a welcomed reprieve for many kids who face poverty, at-risk environments, and emotional turmoil at home.
Consider sponsoring a few smiles this summer – it’ll be worth every penny.
Hope Reins Summer Camp is a long-standing tradition loved by kids of all ages who want to experience a fun-filled, memorable week at a real RANCH!
Basic Horsemanship Skills: Our goal is for your child to develop a relationship with a horse because it teaches them about non-verbal communication and how to better regulate their behavior. Horse activities include basic horse care, training, grooming, and riding.
Camp Activities: Has your son or daughter every enjoyed completing a chore? Well, they will at Hope Reins. From scrubbing water buckets to scooping horse manure, they’ll learn teamwork and responsibility. Also, arts, crafts, and games are taken to a new level – especially when they involve our 4-legged friends!
Jesus: The most important component of Hope Reins Summer Camp is offering your child the opportunity to develop deeper relationships – especially with Jesus because we believe it’s the most important relationship they can EVER have! Every summer, a different area of study from the Bible is interwoven through lessons, devotional time, and yes, even horse and camp activities. To top it all off, your child will be accompanied all week by a caring, experienced camp counselor.
