Martha Haynes, Director of Nameless Creek Youth Camp PIN Camp spoke to Kiwanis about PIN Camp.  PIN stands for Plug Into Nature.  The purpose of the PIN camp is to provide third through fifth graders with the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors without any electronic devices. Students who participated came from all four Hancock County School systems. 
NCYC Volunteers clean the camp before the camp begins.  High School students serve as counselors.  New Pal United Methodist Church prepared the food. Ross Yoder provided a program on Stranger Danger. Fire Cadets provided gear for Fire Gear races.  Mozzi Pizza provided Pizza for the last day of Camp.
Activities included making tie dye shirts, swinging, jump rope, making bird houses, walking through the woods  Ga Ga Pit (like dodge ball), creating a banner with hand painting. Programs on recycling and reuse were provided.  A birder presented a program on bird identification. 
The actual cost per student is $100.  Each student's cost is $70 without any scholarships. Scholarships are provided on a need basis.  Kiwanis is a  sponsor.  If you are interested in providing sponsorship  you can contact the camp at 317-649-4154 or
