Annual Topsy Turvy Walk Supports Youth Camping
Help youngsters experience the joy and enriching experience of camping by participating in the third annual Topsy Turvy 5K Walk. The fun way to raise funds to support summer youth camping programs will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on May 22 at Jameson Camp in the west side of Indianapolis.
Jameson Camp, celebrating 83 years of camping this summer, offers a residential overnight camping program with a focus on character development for youth ages 7 to 17. The camp, encompassing 100 acres of woods, meadows and streams, is accredited by the American Camp Association and is a United Way Community Partner. Jameson serves any child who might benefit from a camping program which values diversity by creating a rich environment of endless opportunities for growth and personal development.
Its staff is also trained to serve children with minor social and/or emotional challenges and limited financial resources. In order to best serve families, program fees are based on the family’s income to try to make it possible for any child to be able to attend camp. Gather friends and co-workers and support youth summer programs by collecting donations for the event!
