Founders

Camp Nuhop was started in 1974 by Terrie and Jerry Dunlap. With a $500 budget and a list of schools in three counties (Ashland, Wayne & Holmes), Camp Nuhop was born. Terrie, a special education teacher, and Jerry, an educator who loved the outdoors and at-risk children, created Camp Nuhop with the hope of providing a place where children who are often times misunderstood could belong, build friendships and flourish. What started out as a humble program for 27 kids has now grown to serve around 500 kids from over 20 states. The Camp Nuhop Magic continues on almost 40 years later.
