How We Began...
In 1975, a group from Frostburg United Methodist Church in Frostburg, Maryland, traveled to Kentucky to participate in a work camp. Upon their return, they began to see a similarity of housing needs and shared their concern for their own community.
Their minister at the time, Reverend Tom Kaylor, had recently seen a spiritual need with the youth he worked with and shared a vision of providing both a supportive Christian program for the youth and home repair for area residents in need.
Under the direction of Reverend Tom Kaylor and through the hard work of many committed people, the vision of CAMP HOPE became a reality in the summer of 1977.
