Camp Hope Anniversary

Hope Conference and Renewal Center in Blairstown, NJ, celebrated its 75th anniversary with a “Hoopla” on Saturday, June 25th. The afternoon was filled with activities, from archery to swimming, canoeing and other games. A picnic supper, complete with birthday cake, brought together former and current campers and staff, with beloved Directors Bill and Marge Hassler in attendance. Jodie Harney, Chair of the Hope Management Board, greeted everyone. Vespers were held around the campfire at the Vesper site. We are grateful to those who organized this celebration and to all who have committed time and energy to this ministry over the past 75 years.
