Providing a safe and
fun environment where young people can
learn about God,
build their faith,
and form friendships.
Conley's Camp has a new name:
"Start children off on the way they should go,
and when they are old they will not turn from it."
~ Proverbs 22:6
The success of our summer camp has opened doors for us to partner with other churches and ministries in our community! This reinforces our connection with other congregations, bears witness to the world regarding our unity with fellow Christians, and creates exciting new opportunities for outreach and growth. To reflect this new step in the development of our summer camp and to encourage even more partnerships in the future, we have adopted a new name: Camp Hope!
What is Camp Hope?
Camp Hope is an eight-week summer day-camp for children going into 2nd - 5th grade.
The camp features fun indoor and outdoor activities, games, Bible stories, a healthy breakfast and lunch, arts and crafts, and more! While some students look forward to a summer filled with fun vacations and recreational activities, there are others in our community who cannot afford such costly adventures . . . who miss the structure, resources, and safety provided by school. Camp Hope endeavors to provide these children with fun, wholesome summer memories - all free of charge through the generous support of members of our church and community.
When is Camp Hope?
Camp Hope meets Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays when public schools break for the summer. Monday and Tuesday activities are held at Conley's Church, Thursdays are "field days" that take advantage of the many fun activities our region has to offer.
Who can attend Camp Hope?
Brochures and applications are distributed to those who can most benefit from the services Camp Hope has to offer. Unfortunately, resources are limited and spaces fill up fast; applications submitted to Conley's Church are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
How can I support Camp Hope?
Financial donations may be sent to Conley's Church, 33106 Jolyns Way, Lewes DE, 19958 - put "Camp Hope" in the memo line. You may also donate online using the "donate" button at the bottom of the church's webpage - again, designate your gift to Camp Hope.
Who is in charge of Camp Hope?
Camp Hope is led by a governing board composed of members of Conley's, Israel, and Bethel United Methodist Churches. Karen Lessey (Director of Camp Hope), and the staff and volunteers of the camp are all dedicated to ensuring the welfare and healthy spiritual development of the children entrusted to their care. Everyone who works with children on Conley's campus is required to pass a thorough fifty-state background check, have an excellent reputation in the church and community, and meet all requirements of our Safe Sanctuaries Policy.
Our Goal: To help young people grow in their understanding and relationship with God, with family, with their community, and with one another.
