Event Description

A first-ever 44-hour retreat for teachers will take place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, through noon on Saturday, June 18. Camp Hope is a 3-day experience designed to provide emotional and spiritual restoration for P-12 educators. Campers will settle into private single-room accommodations in the beautiful Lissner Hall, enjoy great meals, circle up with other teachers, experience outdoor microadventures, and learn about the science of Hope theory as a pathway to increased personal and professional wellness. The Camp Hope experience will be facilitated by Bethel professors Peg McCormick and Geri Von Grey, with Erin Wanat, Director of Indigo, an organization that provides special education administrative support to charter schools.


In the event of cancellation, please notify the Camp Hope team by June 3 for a refund. After this date, your registration cannot be refunded.
