What We Offer

New Hope of Indiana’s Camp Catalyst empowers campers to be catalysts for change in their communities who can redefine what it means to have a disability or to be a friend to someone with a disability. At this week-long day camp, children with disabilities will experience a fun day camp experience alongside siblings, friends and peers without disabilities. Campers will enjoy tie-dying, science experiments, crafts, jewelry making, singing, dancing, games and much more!

Online registration is open through Friday, May 17, 2024. The registration process is thorough and will likely take at least 30 minutes. The registration form can be saved and completed later. Contact us at camp@newhopeofindiana.org for more information.
