Camp Hope

Camp Hope offers a balance between discussions, challenges and recreation. It's a place to honor loved ones, encourage each other, and learn coping skills.

ASHLAND — The United Fund of Shelby, Ohio has successfully completed their 2022 fundraising campaign and allocated $1,500 from the proceeds for Hospice of North Central Ohio's “Camp Hope” children’s bereavement camp.

The camp, established by Hospice of North Central Ohio (HNCO) in 1996, is held annually at Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp.

“We are indeed grateful to The United Fund of Shelby for their continued support of this special program," said Becky Pfister, HNCO Social Services Supervisor. "HNCO could not provide this much-needed program to grieving children without the generous support received through charitable gifts and grants.”

The 2022 Camp Hope is scheduled for June 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th. For more information on Camp Hope and other HNCO services and programs call 800-952-2207 or access our website at
