Since its start in 1951, Happy Hollow Children’s Camp (INDIANA) has welcomed more than 40,000 children to experience a summer camp full of opportunities for learning and adventure. Children ages 7 to 14 from the Greater Indianapolis area make friends, learn about nature and take part in supervised camp activities that help them see new possibilities for themselves.
Happy Hollow serves over 700 children each summer. Of the children attending camp, 77% of the children are minorities and 95% of our campers live in poverty. As one of the only residential camps in Indiana focusing on service to economically challenged children, the Happy Hollow camp’s staff and directors are working diligently to help Central Indiana families meet the challenges of providing great opportunities to their children. Happy Hollow is accredited by the American Camp Association and maintains the highest standards of quality and safety.
The Happy Hollow Asthma Camp is the only residential asthma camp in the state of Indiana, which impacted over 100 children suffering from severe to moderate asthma in 2014. Our volunteer medical staff and staff have been providing a high quality camp for children with asthma for over 26 years. Each child has the opportunity to learn from our medical staff about their asthma symptoms and how to lead an active healthy lifestyle while controlling their asthma. The children with asthma will experience a week of outdoor activities with the assistance of a trained medical staff on site. At asthma camp, Happy Hollow provides the tools and action plan to help children manage their asthma and lead healthy lives. The camp is open to children with asthma in the entire State of Indiana.

HOW THE MONEY WILL BE USED
In 2016, the TSF Grant Accelerator Award was for $5,500.
In 2015, the TSF Grant Accelerator Award of $7,500 will be used for continued support to provide a one-week summer camp experience for children with asthma. The grant will ensure no child is turned away due to the parent’s inability to cover the camp fees. The grant will pay transportation to and from camp, all meals, room and board, asthma education, and all nature program activities for children who could not attend camp without these funds.
In 2014, the TSF Grant Accelerator Award of $10,000 was used to support the Happy Hollow Summer Asthma Camp for children with moderate to severe asthma.
