Hope Loves Company is also celebrating its 10 year anniversary! Camp HLC offers so many fun experiences. New this year, HLC will be hosting a 10 year anniversary Stepping with Hope Walk. There will also be lake activities, a pool party, a slip n’ slide, archery, fishing, group therapy sessions, goal setting, art and music, a duct tape fashion show, a parent social, and campfire with s’mores! Even more important, children attending will all have something in common and can build new friendships and feel less alone in their challenges.
