Camp Hope and Public Housing

On July 5, 2016, a group of children from Passaic County Public Housing Agency families were fortunate enough to spend a day at Camp Hope thanks to the continued support of the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders. This is the sixth year that the Housing Agency was able to offer a day of summer fun to the residents of the County, and many of the same children have returned year after year.

Camp Hope is a 62 acre wooded retreat in West Milford which offers recreational activities, swimming, and a water park. The children were also able to enjoy an informative nature walk with the camp counselors and spent time in the arts and crafts center with a project.

The Board of Chosen Freeholders sponsors all qualified children to attend camp free of charge. Campers are provided with lunch, snacks and transportation to the site. Agency staff and volunteers assist in chaperoning the event.

Janice DeJohn, Executive Director of the Housing Agency, stated, “The children enjoy the day immensely and love the swimming pool and water park. The trip also provides relief to working parents who need to provide care for their children in the summer months.”
