At Camp Hobé programs, participants have the opportunity to rediscover self-confidence and build meaningful friendships. Participants of all ages make lifelong friends that understand the devastating effects of a frightening disease.
Camp Hobé currently offers four summer camp programs during the summer and at least 2 family outings during the off-season:
- Day Camp / Hobe’ Juniors camp session: A two-day in-person session for 4 to 6 year-olds
- Kids Camp (also called Kids Week) session: A five-day overnight in-person session for 7 to 11 year-olds
- Teen Camp (also called Teen Week) session: A five-day overnight in-person session for 12 to 19 year-olds
- Virtual Camp session: A four-day virtual interactive session for 6 to 19 year-olds
- Family outing program: Free family outings are offered throughout the year, so the whole family can bond with others. Family outings may include events such as hockey matches, basketball games, carnival events, and movie premieres.
Summer Camp Activities
During the summer camp sessions, campers may participate in a variety of activities with their cabin groups, as individuals, and with the entire camp:
- Archery (in-person camp)
- Competitive and noncompetitive field games
- Creative writing
- Hikes (in-person camp)
- Initiative games
- Nature awareness
- Swimming (in-person camp)
- Theater games
Additional activities may be offered depending on availability, such as creative dance, or soccer clinics. Program activities are structured to meet the developmental needs of specific age groups.
Hobé Forever is an optional “guided” activity offered during the camp session where campers have time to remember friends who are not present that year. This activity allows campers the opportunity to express feelings of grief and loss if they desire. Camp staff members respect any requests for further counseling or discussion.
