Welcome Sarah

Greetings from a beautiful Camp New Hope.


We would like for you to meet Sarah age 7.  Sarah was born with hydrocephalus and has 3 shunts,
seizure disorder, CP and additional multiple diagnosis.  Sarah does not walk or talk, but she does communicate to others in her own special way.  Today she had a visit from Santa and could not keep pulling his beard!  Sarah has just lost her front teeth and I bet if she could talk to Santa she would tell him she wants her front teeth for Christmas!  Santa shared chocolate chip cookies made by one of his Elf's and if you take time and look at the attached pictures you will see that they were a huge hit with Sarah.  Sarah also went tubing with her Mom and Dad this afternoon. Sarah is here with her parents, grandparents, aunt and uncle. She will be riding the horses later on this week.  Please remember Sarah and her family in your thoughts and prayers and as always
the Camp.

Thank you for your continued financial support of the camp.  We are planning an Open House in the next few months and we would love to have you come spend the day with us.  We will let you know of the time once we work out the details.

Please Welcome Miquel



Greetings from a chilly Camp New Hope! We would like for you to meet Miquel age 8 who is here this week with his brothers, grandfather, aunt and parents. Miquel normally appears healthy but has epilepsia partialis continua. His secondary diagnosis are intractable partial epilepsy, cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, agemesis of corpus callosum, arachnoid cyst, migrational abnormality and seizure disorder. When he was born the doctors said he would never be able to walk and would be
blind. Well, as you can see that is not the case. Miquel is full of energy and has already been tubing and playing the arcade games and air hockey. I am sure there will be a lot of exciting things going on here at the camp this week!

Again, as always "thank you" for your continued support of the camp.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. "Thank you" to all the volunteers you are truly a blessing. Thank you for all the fresh vegetables and fruit to those of you who have sent us these delicious foods. I have been canning again this year so I kind of feel like Paula Dean!

Come visit when you can!

Welcome Tyler


Greetings from a beautiful Camp New Hope.  The sky is clear and there is such a nice breeze with the sunny skies.  We would like for you to meet Tyler age 10.  Tyler was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at age 6 months and even though he has to take numerous nebulizer treatments daily to help him with his breathing as well as pancreatic enzymes and other medications he looks like a healthy young man.  Cystic Fibrosis is a lung disease so if Tyler gets a cold it can become very serious very fast if not treated.

Tyler is here this week with 6 additional children and 4 adults so we have a very active camp this week.  Tyler will be going to a local art studio and to ride horses this week. He has already said that he loves the water so we will be getting wet this week also.  Please keep this family and the camp in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you for your continued support because this is what makes the camp a success.  As always, thank you to Will and Mark for all they do.

Come see us when you can!
