Power of Hope Camp 2019

  • Commonweal 451 Mesa Road Bolinas, CA, 94924 United States (map)


A gathering of 45 youth (14 to 18 years of age) from diverse backgrounds and life situations, and 25 adult staff and volunteers who are delighted to be with you—visual artists, musicians, actors, storytellers, dancers, naturalists, self-care specialists, community activists, change makers—all there to build a community in which everyone thrives. Good food, good friends, and good fun, in a relaxing, natural setting.

At Power of Hope Camp you’ll develop confidence, a joy for life, and the internal motivation to follow your aspirations and live a meaningful life. You’ll learn to build bridges across lines of difference like religion, culture and class—an increasingly important skill in today’s world. Diversity is foundational to the Power of Hope Camp experience. We are non-religious and our camp is open to all.

“What I liked most about camp was the supportive and loving community. ”
—Teen Camper, POH 2015 at Commonweal
