Camp HLC Florida

Thank you to everyone who joined us at our 24th Camp HLC at  Camp Winona in DeLeon Springs, FL!

Our campers climbed a giant tree and sped down a zipline, learned international dances, relaxed with yoga, and enjoyed the beautiful Lake Winona, giant blob, wet willie slide, and more!

We are so fortunate to serve so many incredible children and families. Thank you for being a part of the Hope Loves Company Family!
Thank you to The LiveLikeLou Foundation and Phi Delta Theta Fraternity for supporting Camp HLC Florida! We were so grateful to be joined by Maaz, Shawn, Brad, and Cameron of the University of Texas at Dallas Chapter! These exceptional young men drove over 16 hours each way to be a part of the Camp HLC FL weekend.

Thank you Sara Bartos for guiding us through yoga and reflection -  such an important part of the Camp HLC experience!

HLC Hero

October 2019

Congratulations to Emily Dhondt, our HLC Hero for the month of October!

Emily is the Digital Marketing Manager at ALS TDI where she spends her days sharing the stories of people living with ALS and the science happening in ALS research. Emily is from Tampa, FL and graduated from the University of Florida. For many years she worked as a camp counselor over the summer, so volunteering at Camp HLC with Hope Loves Company was a perfect way to combine her love for camp with her mission to help families who have been affected by ALS. In her free time she enjoys traveling, eating, improv, running, and spending time with friends and family!
Thank you Emily for being such an important part of the Camp HLC team!

The Hope Loves Company Documentary

The Hope Loves Company Documentary, directed by award-winning documentarian Steve Besserman, begins with the founding of Hope Loves Company and then follows several families affected by ALS. This heartwarming documentary is a story of triumph of the human spirit and the journey to shape grief into action. It's a story that celebrates a group of courageous caregiving teens and their families who deserve to be applauded. Please help bring recognition to this unique group of amazing caregivers by sharing this story of ALS, love, and hope with family and friends.
