Caring Hands Camps2020

The 11th annual Caring Hands Camp is a project of the Boys and Girls Club of Boone County. The camp is also partnering with, St. Francis In-The-Fields Episcopal Church, Zeta Sigma Chapter of Tri Kappa, and the Lions Club. There are two camp weeks, June 8th-12th, 2020 and July 6th-10th, 2020, both take place at the St. Francis In-the-Fields Episcopal Church. Our goal is to bring kids in the Zionsville community coming together to help others in Zionsville, Boone County and neighboring counties.

We have a number of objectives for our Caring Hands Camp and strive to incorporate an element of service and fun in each and every day. Our camps are community service oriented, theme-driven summer camps with the themes as follows:

  • Disability Awareness
  • Animal Protection
  • Senior Giving
  • Hunger Relief
  • Kids for Kids.

We involve a host of community leaders and community service organizations and provide service opportunities throughout the year.

Registration opens 7:00am on March 2nd at the Whitestown and Zionsville locations.
(You must register in person - 60 Campers per week)

Dates: July 20 – July 24
