Location and History

Happy Hollow Camp is located in Nashville, IN approximately 1 hour south of Indianapolis, IN and 1 hour north of Louisville, KY. It sits on over 900 acres of rolling hills with miles of trails to hike and a private 20 acre lake that sits in the middle of the property. Happy Hollow Camp has been operating at its current location since 1951 and is an agency of the United Way and accredited by the American Camp Association.

The Campers

The majority of campers that attend City Camp Sessions are from Indianapolis and come from low income families. Campers from our Special Health Need Camps come from all over the state of Indiana. The camp is generally divided evenly between boys and girls (64 boys and 64 girls). Campers must be between the ages of 7-14 in City Camp.

The Staff

Each summer Happy Hollow hires approximately 35 staff, primarily made up of college students from across the country and whenever possible from foreign countries. On a year-round, full time basis, the camp is staffed with an Executive Director, Development Director, Recruitment & Program Director, Assistant Director, Foodservice Director, and Maintenance Personnel.


Camp provides certification courses in CPR, first aid, life-guarding, kayaking, canoeing, and high ropes. If you are already certified, it must be current through completion of employment.
