This lodge has grown into a place where the overarching emphasis and weekly activities revolve around positive and engaging group activities, after-school tutoring, athletic competitions, and character development studies.

Str8Up Youth Camp (formerly Leinert Gym Camp)
This unique 27 acre camp, in the middle of the city, is a great escape for youth who are constantly surrounded by concrete. This property is an oasis in the city with a spring fed lake utilized for water activities such as swimming, kayaking, and fishing. There is also a gymnasium with a full basketball court as well as many open fields for games and horseback riding. The long term vision for this piece of property is that it would continue to be developed into an epicenter of positive outdoor adventure and recreation for youth in our program and the greater Indianapolis area.
