Review for Happy Hollow Children's Camp, Inc., Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The underprivileged and under served kids that we give a free week of camp are the most vulnerable yet the most receptive. The influence we give them in one short week of a better way of life in the relaxed and stress free environment of our camp does make a difference in their lives. Unfortunately, since most of our alum are poor, we have a hard time with fund raising at times. Most folks say they care about underprivileged kids but rarely put their money to back up the claim. Thanks to a great group of folks who do back up their claim, we continue to serve.

Review for Happy Hollow Children's Camp, Inc., Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When the under privileged kids that are served by this camp with a free week of summer camp arrive on Sunday night, they often are nervous or cry because of the new to them environment of the beautiful countryside known as the Brown County Indiana Hills. After a week of learning about nature, learning what is like to have three family style meals a day, learning crafts, learning skills, riding horses, playing on the rope course, and many other activities, they cry because they don't want to leave to go. Yet, in a short week they have learned that there can be better for them, that there are people who care, and there are folks who can help them reach their dreams if they themselves are willing to put in the effort on their end. It is really a sight to behold.
