Camps of Hope 

Every year, children in our communities enjoy the enriching experience of attending camp through the Camps of Hope Program.  Camps of Hope helps to pay registration fees for families in need.  We strive to give all children and youth the opportunity to experience the fun of being a child and to not be excluded from the activities their friends are enjoying.

NM Educator Nights
