Before coming to HFH Summer Camps, most HFH campers have never left New York City, and many have never experienced the wonder and excitement of nature first hand. Most campers have never fished, sat around a campfire, or learned how to swim. HFH Summer Camps offer a welcome opportunity for children experiencing homelessness to escape the stresses of everyday life, and to engage in fun, healthy, and educational activities.

Each summer, three sessions are offered at HFH Summer Camps. These sessions provide participants with a level of routine, safety, and stability that many have not experienced, as the chaos of changing homes and schools repeatedly can give children experiencing homelessness the impression that their lives will always be in transition. At Camp Wakonda, campers enjoy and eagerly anticipate their favorite activities from swimming and boating to telling stories around a campfire and having sleepovers with their new friends.
