The community is invited to Camp Hope’s annual fundraiser on Saturday, June 3 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Beacon Club, 4100 W. Yellowstone Highway in Mills.

The fundraiser will also coincide with the Poke-R Run for Camp Hope, which begins with a breakfast at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church at 701 S. Wolcott in Casper at 9 a.m. and ends at the Beacon Club. All vehicles are welcome to participate in the Poke-R Run at $20 per hand.

Mayor Bruce Knell will be making the official proclamation to kick off Camp Hope Day at 10 a.m. at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church to begin the Poke-R Run.

For 44 years, Camp Hope has been providing campers with education on diabetes self-care with a focus on the emotional and psychological aspects of the disease.

Camp Hope offers a one-week residential setting with log cabins, each with its own fireplace. The camp provides a medical team of physicians, physician assistants, nurses (several of whom are Certified Diabetic Educators), and pharmacists.

Campers can expect a week of fun activities which can include swimming, hiking, miniature golf, special events, field trips, bowling, games, competitive sports, and creative arts and crafts.

When asked what Camp Hope means to them, campers responded that it was a place “where memories are made and lives are saved.”

The Saturday event at the Beacon Club will feature live music from three bands (Rumble Trunk, Rogue Radio, and Fireball Daddy), a silent auction, raffles, and multiple opportunities to win prizes! This is a family-friendly event with activities for children including Merrily the Clown, The Science Zone, Artisan Alley, and I’Scream 4 Ice Cream.
