Support Our Camp

Your Support Makes All the Difference

Begun in 1948 as a camp for youth, we have a proud 60 year plus history and heritage to celebrate and to advance. We hope you will continue to be a part of this place as members of the Friends of New Hope Camp and Conference Center!

You are invited to join our efforts as a Friend of New Hope Camp and Conference Center. The Friends organization will help to create new programs, spruce up the camp through financial contributions, share ideas for providing leadership activities with and for youth, and broaden the ways we serve the Triangle Community. Our Board, representing 6 area Presbyterian Churches, has organized new committees for specific tasks relative to our goals. As our organization moves forward, we need your help and support.

In 2009 New Hope Camp & Conference Center had a total of 638 camper weeks over 9 weeks of camp. This year our campers will spend up to 9 weeks playing, learning, laughing and growing together in a loving faith community. Our summer of songs, games, and devotions help our campers appreciate the natural world around them, one another and God’s role in all of that. Likewise, our retreat business continues to grow. Over the past year, over 7,000 people have enjoyed retreats, meetings, conferences, weddings and reunions here. New Hope Camp is a place that so many enjoy. Help us continue to be that quiet place in our world where people can come together in community with one another and with God.

We realize that over the past year, many charitable organizations have needed your support. The recent natural disasters have wrecked much havoc and much is needed to help victims in our country and beyond. But, please consider what you can offer locally this coming year to New Hope Camp and Conference Center.

Consider all the ways in which you can give to camp and help us perpetuate our mission, vision and ministry in this place. We cannot do it alone. We want you, the people of our community, to be involved in this camp and conference center. Please contact us with questions or ideas. We appreciate your support and we look forward to serving you in this ministry.

Annual Fund

December 2019

As 2019 draws to a close, and as we look back on this year, we can celebrate many successes.  Unfortunately, this year was a financial disappointment.  While retreat usage was up, summer camp attendance was down.  That, combined with a shorter camp season, contributed to reduced revenues. The resulting shortfall requires us to put a critical eye on our ministry, mission, and message as we begin preparations for 2020.  We are pursuing additional outreach in our faith communities for participation and support. 

Our ministry continues -  After-School at New Hope welcomes about 50 children every afternoon.  Families value a place where their children can be outdoors, in a safe environment, and grow in community together.  On our Retreat side, we host a variety of groups using our facilities to get away from their day-to-day routine.   We’re working to ensure that more people find our site a special place to meet, meditate, and enjoy our natural setting.

If you believe that summer camp is a wonderful experience for our youth of today and that Camp New

Hope is “a place apart” to introduce youngsters to God’s wonderful creation, we encourage you to partner with us by making a monetary donation to the camp.  If you have supported us in the past, please consider increasing your level of support. 


There are several ways to reach us.   

  • Drop a check in the mail, memo- “Annual Fund”

  • Visit our web site and click on the Donate button.   From there you can designate a one-time gift or a recurring monthly gift.

Visit us.  If you have never visited the Camp or if it’s been awhile since you’ve dropped by, we’d love to show you around.  The fall is a wonderful time of year to walk our Labyrinth, sit by our lake and take in the scenery, or maybe visit our office for a tour.  Think how we might be able to host your next meeting, workshop, or family get-together.


Thank you for your support in the past.  We need your continued donations to make this ministry work.  Please prayerfully consider making a financial gift to New Hope Camp this month.  It is through the generosity of people like you that this ministry continues.
