Angel's Dream for CAMP HOPE

Please help my dear friend Angel Howerton. Here is the story...

Native Angel's Camp Hope & Holistic Healing Retreat is going to be a Holistic Camp for kids with cancer and many other disabilities.

Native Angel's Camp Hope will be an amazing place where kids and adults can come learn what living a holistic healthy lifestyle is all about.

Our little campers will have a lot of fun relaxing in tepees and playing in tree houses while learning about organic gardening, herbs and healing with art. There will be covered wagon rides, camp fire stories and so much more. In addition, we will teach parents all about the healthy benefits of juicing and cover many other additional ways to help your little loved ones body's heal and detox.

In time we will grow into a complete Holistic Retreat and Learning Center.

Our camp site offers natural springs, beautiful trails and a large spring fed pond containing different varieties of fish. In addition, we have an amazing all natural creek that runs through our 70 acres in the Beautiful Ozark forest.
My Husband and I have been working on this project for many years and our dreams are finally near. We bought this property years ago with this special camp in mind. Unfortunately, I was in a severe accident which left me wheel chair bound for months and I even had to learn how to walk again. While healing from the accident and surgeries I found out I had stage 4 Cancer. The doctors told me I had 3 Weeks to live back in June of 2011; so I thought our Dream was over.

This was a major set back, however, I did not listen to the doctors and I Healed Holistically. It's been a long journey. But now its time to get busy and get "Camp Hope" Open!
I know God has HUGE plans for "Camp Hope"! I can’t wait to see the children playing and learning.

We need a lot of help. So far it has just been my husband building and putting in the gardens..

We Need You! Please Help US Help others :)

The first guest cabin will sleep 12, have 2 private bedrooms, separate massage room and it will overlook the pond and beautiful bird garden.

Our goal is to build 4 more cedar guest cabins on our campsite. These additional guest cabins will sleep 8+ and each will have a private bathroom. We would also like to build a central recreational building with additional restrooms, showers and a kitchen. We already have the perfect spot picked out overlooking the creek.

With your help and support we can make anything happen. We will start small and continue dreaming big.

We are also looking for people that would like to come volunteer.

Right now we have a great sponsorship in place with Mill Creek Nursery. They have offered to give us everything at their cost to put in the organic orchard and garden. They can supply us with many varieties of trees, vegetables, fruits, seeds, organic plants, organic soil, drip lines, fencing, hoses and everything else needed to get up and running.

So now all we need is your help! There are many ways to help out. Volunteering, financial gifts, sponsorships or even simple prayers are all welcomed and accepted. Let's make this dream come true!


Our first goal to finish the guest cabin is near to reality. And the organic orchard and garden, along with a  handicapped accessible playground  for the children is getting started. Let's make this happen for the health and healing of our children. God bless you.
