“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.

Did you know that ALS can affect a person of any gender, race, age, religion, geographic location, or ethnicity? That's why it is the goal of Hope Loves Company to establish a Camp HLC within 5 hours of every child affected by ALS. Every donation brings us one step closer to making this goal a reality.

"Camp has an indescribable magic of how to deal with your feelings, your emotions, and this disease. The people who run it are the best of the best - they truly want to do whatever they can for the children and caregivers. THANK YOU!" - parent, MA 2018.
Camp HLC is a wonderful opportunity for children, young adults, and families who have had or have a loved one battling ALS to come together to have fun, build friendships, and feel less alone in their challenges.

"Camp HLC helps you get the hard times out and the good times in!" - 10 year old camper, NJ 2018.

*Unlike our other camps, which are 3-day weekend retreats, Camp HLC Indiana is a week-long camp thanks to the generosity of the Flat Rock River campground. Parents, chaperones, volunteers, and HLC staff do not stay at camp overnight at this location. HLC programming takes place in the afternoons from Wednesday, June 19 to Saturday, June 22 and the rest of the week's programming is facilitated by Flat Rock River staff.
