Our Camp

Located in the beautiful mountains of Ashe County near Boone, North
Carolina, Camp New Hope is a privately owned, nonprofit, no-charge
facility for families who have children with life-threatening medical
conditions. This unique and rustic five-bedroom lodge will provide you
and your family with all the comforts of home, and more.

The Amazing Outdoors

Located on the New River, overlooking 160 acres of wooded mountains
and grassy flatlands, you and your family are sure to enjoy spectacular
views, either from a comfortable rocking chair on the front porch or just
taking a casual stroll along the shores of the beautiful river.

For daytime enjoyment, you may choose from a variety of sports
equipment including:

  • canoes
  • kayaks
  • tubes
  • volleyball
  • baseball
  • soccer
  • fishing
  • or you may want to take a cool dip in the “swimming hole.”

We even have a play set out back for the smaller children. The choice is yours. Remember, you have the entire camp to
yourselves to enjoy at your leisure. At night, when the stars are out, how about a cozy campfire by the river’s edge roasting
marshmallows or telling funny stories as you sit in your favorite Adirondack Chair.

The Lodge

Your kitchen will be stocked with your favorite foods. Sit and relax with your family by the huge stone fireplace watching your
favorite TV program, DVD or movie. Play an exciting Nintendo Game with the kids, work a puzzle, play a family board game, or if
you’re so inclined, curl up on the huge L-shaped sofa with your favorite book ’till time to turn in. In the morning, when you wake
from a good night’s sleep, take a look from the porch to see deer, wild turkey, or a flock of geese down beside the river. The
view is peaceful, yet breathtaking!

Only Requirements

1) clothes
2) toothbrush

We provide the rest. Our goal is to provide your family with a week of fun and relaxation while providing priceless memories for
the future. With so many exciting options, you don’t have to leave the camp all week. It’s only a short “hike” from Glendale Springs and West Jefferson, home of The Churches of the Frescoes (created by artist Ben Long) and the Ashe County Cheese factory. There you will be met by friendly smiles from the local merchants.

    Hello, my name is Whitney Hayes. I have a 1 1/2 year old son name Kaidyn Brown who was diagnosed with a terminal illness earlier this year (3/14/18) with a disease called Menkes Syndrome. We are under hospice care and they’ve extended this offer to us as I’ve been inquiring about a trip where my family and I can take him as well as my other 3 year old son Kamden just to be able to enjoy every moment we get to spend with Kaidyn while he is still blessed to be with us. They have given my son until the age of 3 years old to live but of course my faith is stronger than that. It would just be an honor to still be able to have a family trip to remember. Please contact me as soon as possible!

    Thanks, Whitney Hayes
