Hopewell Recreation and Parks is excited to announce that summer camps have returned to Hopewell! Our award-winning camp programs provide a structured and safe environment for physical activity, social interaction, and tons of fun! Camp programs are being offered for children ages 5-8 and 9-12. Each age group will feature a variety of age-appropriate activities like arts, crafts, sports, group games, special guests, swimming, and much more! Camps will be based out of Patrick Copeland Elementary School and will utilize Mathis Park and Crystal Lake Park for activities. Swimming will be conducted at the Hopewell Community Center under the supervision of certified lifeguards. The program will meet weekly, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided during each day of camp.
This year's camp programs will be slightly different than past years due to the coronavirus pandemic. Camp programs will be conducted in accordance with all applicable COVID-19 guidelines. With these guidelines changing frequently, specific information will be provided closer to each week's start date. Participants should be prepared to wear face coverings for indoor activities and social distancing will be practiced whenever possible. Most activities will be conducted outdoors to allow for spacing and plenty of fresh air. As with every year of camp, the Department's top priority is keeping every child as safe as possible.

Hopewell Recreation and Parks is proud to partner with the John Randolph Foundation to bring summer camp programming to the youth of Hopewell. This year's camp programs are made possible through a $38,500 grant provided by JRF. The two organizations celebrate a long history of impacting the community dating all the way back to 1999. Since then, JRF has provided over $400,000 in direct financial support for youth summer camp programs facilitated by Hopewell Recreation and Parks. HRP and JRF have also worked together on notable projects like the Piazza Paths at Dupont Elementary School and Harry E. James Elementary School, as well as the Learn to Swim program at the Hopewell Community Center.
