Volunteering makes it possible to care for the 132 acre outdoor campus where thousands of children and teens are building more than campfires.

This month, a team of 65 volunteers from Allison Transmission gave 325 collective hours to the stewardship of Jameson Camp. Some of the achievements of these hardworking individuals include:

  • Spread FOUR TONS of woodchips to make trails safer and outdoor recreation more accessible
  • Spread 200 cubic feet of landscaping mulch
  • Chopped enough firewood for three months of programming (and repaired the log splitter)
  • Built a mini-barn
  • Installed a secure mailbox
  • Weeded two sign gardens and half a mile of garden beds
  • Removed invasive species to help native plants and animals thrive
  • Cleared solar panels increasing energy sustainability and efficiency
  • Refreshed the Nature Center, Jameson Center, and multiple cabins
  • Organized maintenance garage to make finding tools and supplies easier
  • Volunteers supplied water, tools, the use of pickup trucks, and concrete for projects

Jameson Camp would like to thank the staff at McAllister’s Deli – Avon for their work in preparing and deliverying hearty lunches for those who volunteers. 

A special thanks to the team at United Way of Central Indiana for making this partnership possible.
