Our mission is to enrich the lives of Indiana youth by inspiring them to discover their strengths!
Join us for Summer Camp in 2022!
Jameson Camp provides all campers with a fun, safe and supportive environment. We offer all the fun activities of camp such as swimming, camping, arts and crafts and adventure programming. What makes our camp different from others is that our program is specially designed to assist children and youth to discover new skills, strengths and self-confidence. We help our campers to gain greater respect for themselves and others and the environment. Our trained staff help reinforce the value of personal responsibility, a positive attitude and peaceful conflict resolution with children who often have experienced neglect, abuse or are coping with other stressful situations.
We believe that every child deserves to go to summer camp, and we’re dedicated to helping make that happen.
What will you P.A.C.K. for camp?
DAYS UNTIL SUMMER CAMP BEGINS!
