Today is the last day of Summer Camp here at Hope. Yesterday, we had an end of the summer party filled with popcorn, freeze pops, carnival games, basketball and music. The children had tons of fun on the sunny day!

Students enjoy watching "Big Hero 6" with popcorn and frozen pops! Are there any new movies out that you would like to see?

Thank you to HSHS St. John’s Hospital for its recent gift to support The Hope Institute! Several of Hope’s students participate in the Kohl's' Gotta Dance program that St. John’s facilitates. Though this partnership, our students experience important social, emotional and physical growth. Thank you, St. John’s Hospital for supporting Hope’s children and families!

Jivan, an Eagle Scout, built beautiful benches for Hope and created an area now known as the Circle of Friendship by administration. He landscaped and created an inviting environment. Last week, Jivan came out campus to talk to our boy scouts and show them the new place.

Last Thursday, our children were in for a real treat when the exotic animal show stopped by with some turtles and lemurs. https://youtu.be/Yr8uMyDkCrc

We held out annual 4th of July Parade on July 2nd to kick off the Holiday weekend. A special thanks to Illinois National Guard, Springfield and Sangamon County police officers, firefighters, medics, superheroes, Zahara dancers, our scout troops, Roy Moore and his tractor/trailer, and our students who took part in the memorable day! It sure was a great way to celebrate our nation!
