Children were important to Jesus and they're important to us as well. Many children living in our area are dealing with issues that most of us couldn't imagine. 

That's why for over 40 years The Hope Center has actively worked with kids in our surrounding neighborhoods and all over Hagerstown. From providing after-school programs to summer camp, The Hope Center wants to make sure that every child knows that God loves them and has a special plan for their life.

Our youth ministry is working constantly to create fun, educational, spiritual and safe activities and environments where kids can be free to be themselves but also build relationships with positive leaders and, most importantly, Jesus.


During the school year Wildside Youth Ministries hosts various activities. From large themed events to mentoring programs and special Sunday night church just for kids, Wildside Youth is the place to be.


And during the summer months, Wildside hosts one of the most exciting and action-packed day camps in the entire area!


Oh, did we forget to mention that all of this is free? That's right, thanks to all of our faithful donors we are able to provide all this year-round fun for free!
