Christ the Savior Lutheran Church
Outside the Box is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering people to be the leaders in their lives and to create meaning in their days! While most people know of us as specializing in working with people with disabilities, we have developed a summer camp curriculum designed to integrate people, no matter what their challenges or capabilities, to discover themselves and each other through various artful expressions. This year, the tenth annual CAMP Create U! offers another opportunity for us to think “Outside the Box!”
Where: Christ the Savior Lutheran Church, 10500 East 126th Street in Fishers, Indiana. This will be our fifth year here with classrooms, a commercial kitchen, and lots of space for us to enjoy indoor camp activities. Plenty of open space outdoors will also be used!
Theme: We will focus on awareness of each other and ourselves with a focus on each person’s capabilities! All volunteers will be trained in working with campers – and in integrating all people without regard for culture, ethnicity, or capability! We will focus on celebration of each person’s uniqueness through interactive activities, athletics and the arts!
Camp Create U! ~ July 20-24 (ages 6-10) $200 ~ Each group will dance, play games, and do MANY different types of sports, activities, arts and crafts. We will also host The Ability Experience, Journey of Hope Friendship Picnic on Thursday – where will learn about disability awareness with Phi Kappa Psi amidssst their 12,000 mile bicycling ride across the USA!
5 day camp M-F/ 10-3p daily/Campers bring their lunch daily – snacks provided
Other: Campers need to bring a sacked lunch on all days of camp (except Thursday during the picnic!) Sunscreen, (and bug spray if needed,) a daily snack, water and plenty of sugar-free hydration will be provided!
Payment may be made by cash, check, credit card or via service dollars on your FSW or CIH Medicaid Waiver (if applicable.) We are still awaiting potential scholarship funders via a foundation grant – if you would like to be put on a waiting list for scholarships, let us know.
