OUR SITE

Almost every building on our site was built through donor dollars. This is an incredible accomplishment that our community should be very proud of as it means that camper fees are directed towards program expenses only. This helps Camp Hatikvah maintain an affordable fee structure for our financially diverse camper base. 

 

While many of the buildings have been replaced over the years, we will remain forever grateful to those who prioritized Camp Hatikvah in their giving by providing the funding to develop our beloved site.
