Camp HOPE America is the first camping and mentoring initiative in the United States to focus on children and teens exposed to domestic violence. Camp HOPE America began in San Diego in 2003, under the leadership of, then – San Diego City Attorney, Casey Gwinn. The program was part of the nationally recognized San Diego Family Justice Center, a collaborative of about 25 government and non-government agencies co-locating professionals to focus on serving victims of domestic violence and their children.
