The Faces of Hope.

We provide kids with cancer a week of fun and friendship while building confidence and inspiring hope.

Camp Esperanza offers kids with cancer a week of camp to play and to explore. Camp allows them the opportunity to discover their new selves with cancer and to realize just how normal they still can be. Campers share stories with others on the journey of fighting cancer while building friendships and encouraging one another in the midst of joy and laughter.

Camp Esperanza is a unique summer camp experience for children between the ages of 6 and 15 who currently have cancer or have been treated for cancer at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas.  “Esperanza” – the Spanish word for “Hope” – is what Camp Esperanza is all about.

The purpose of the Bridewell Foundation is to raise money to send Camp Esperanza each year. The cost of providing a one week camping experience for each camper is $500 which is free of charge for all campers. We send 140 campers each summer to camp. This means we must raise $70,000.00 to operate camp each year. The Foundation is a tax-exempt Section 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization.

From the Heart

For 35 years we have played, laughed, cried, danced, fished, sang, joked, supported, shared and grown. We have collected an incredible amount of memories and have put together a a slide show which we think captures the true essence of Camp Esperanza’s heart.
