Our signature Summer Camp Program is targeted at serving economically disadvantaged children from the Greater Indianapolis area. For children who qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program at their schools, they will receive our reduced rate for a week of camp. Households with higher incomes will pay a rate based on our sliding scale fee. Children will receive three home cooked meals, 24 hour supervision, 8:2 child/counselor ratio, and round trip transportation to and from camp. This program is offered six different weeks during the summer. These sessions are available for children living Marion, Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, and Morgan counties between the ages of 7 and 14. Must qualify for free or reduced lunch at school.

A physical examination by a licensed medical practitioner is required prior to attendance at camp: the green physical form included in this application must be used for the physical. The last page of the physical form must be completed by a health care professional. Be sure to complete the first three pages of the physical form including immunization record.
