Camp Hope is a program for mothers at Carswell. For 3 days, the children get to come spend the whole day with their mothers. There are special activities planned. This year there was a petting zoo that came. It is a great time for moms and children to bond – you can hardly tell we’re in prison. I was a volunteer and it was very rewarding few days for me. It was amazing to see the women that I live with 24 hours a day in a whole different light. You almost couldn’t recognize some of them when they are with their children. I was blessed to be part of this program.
