Rooftop Friends has partnered with Jay and Katherine Wolf of Hope Heals to reimagine Alabama Family Retreats as Hope Heals Camp, a weeklong camp experience that marks the beginning of a community grown from the disabilities in us all.
At Hope Heals Camp, persons with disability and their families receive encouragement and care in the comfort and safety of a family camp environment. Enjoy fun fully-accessible and age-appropriate activities, be nourished by hearty homestyle meals, build lifelong relationships and glean from meaningful conversations from a network of families who understand the challenges of life with disability. You’ll leave camp encouraged, refreshed, and just maybe a little bit tired from all the fun you and your family will have!
The experience doesn’t end when camp ends – camp is only the beginning of a rich community of people with disabilities on the inside and outside.
Hope Heals Camp is designed for anyone who has a disability and their families, young, old and everyone in between!
Each and every camper is welcomed, appreciated, and celebrated!
When you join us for camp, you can expect lots of time to enjoy activities as a family, teaching and worship times as a large group, free time to spend while your children are well cared for, refreshing and encouraging time with other men and women who have walked a road similar to yours, fun, safe and age appropriate programs for each camper attending, and so much more!
There will be a companion assigned to your family member who has a disability, and they will stay with your camper most of the waking hours. They will be there to help you, get to know your family and give your camper the best camp experience possible! (They cannot help with personal or medical needs, so you’ll set meeting times and places to take care of those needs.)
Here are some memories from Alabama Family Retreat 2015:
