Imagine sleeping under the stars, swimming in a sparkling lake, meeting new friends, and discovering talents you didn’t know you possessed. Imagine creating art and community in a supportive and inspiring environment – all while having a ridiculous amount of fun! If you’re 14 to 18 years old, want to make new friends, explore the arts and make a difference in the world, Power of Hope summer camps are for you!

Each one of us is filled with untapped creativity, and art is a great way to turn it up! At the Power of Hope, you’ll have the opportunity to try to new things and express yourself in a supportive community with visual arts, dance, theatre, writing, media and much more.

PalsEach day, choose from exciting arts and nature-based workshops led by our staff of inspiring artists, musicians, naturalists and change makers.  

Our July 20-27 camp takes place on beautiful Linnaea Farm on Cortes Island, British Columbia. Linnaea is a 315-acre organic farm and land conservancy of fields, orchards, gardens, bluffs and forests, next to a sparkling lake. Everyday there is time to swim, hike and explore outdoors.

The location of our August 16-23rd camp will be in the lower mainland area at the inspiring Lhawathet Retreat Centre. We will be co-running this camp with our sister organization, IndigenEYEZ

Approximately 40 youth & 25 staff from all over Canada and the US attend each of our camps. This small youth-to-staff ratio allows us to provide a safe environment where mentorship relationships can thrive. At every camp, Power of Hope strives to bring together a truly diverse group of youth and staff and aims for diversity of all kinds: ethnic, cultural, religious, class, personality, life experience, and more.

At the Cortes Island camp we’ll be setting up our tents on the beautiful Linnaea Farm lakeside campsites. You’ll need to bring your own tenting gear and sleeping bag.  

At the Lhawathet site we’ll be sleeping in bunk style cabins. You’ll just need to bring your own sleeping gear.

In these gorgeous natural settings you’ll fill your days with fun, friendship, and discovery. Our fabulous chefs prepare three nourishing and delicious meals a day.

Introverts and extroverts are equally welcome!
