Hopewell Summer Camps are a place where thousands of youths’ lives have been changed through meeting God, having fun, and making life-changing friendships. All youth are welcome!

Founded and run by the Hopewell Network of Churches, the camps are led by Pastoral Director Michael “Guerty” Guertin. A graduate of Elim Bible Institute, Guerty has many years of experience both as a children’s pastor and itinerant minster. He has been directing the Hopewell Network Summer Camps since 1991. He is a gifted speaker, and also has a passion for bringing the Bible to life through drama. 

More than anything, however, he is driven by a love for the youth and Jesus. Guerty is joined by various assistant directors and worship leaders who assist him at each of the camps.

There are three unique camps held each summer. Our Senior High Camp is held in late June for youth entering grades 10-12 (maximum age of 18). Junior High Camp is held in mid- to late July and is for youth entering grades 7-9. Finally, our Kids Camp is held in mid-August for kids entering grades 3-6 (minimum age of 8).

Every year, the camps have a different spiritual emphasis theme which extends to all three camps, but each camp is uniquely tailored to be appropriate for each age group.

Hopewell Summer Camp is a highlight each year for many of our children and youth.  You can find further information on the Hopewell Summer Camps website:
