YMCA of Portage Township

The next time someone asks you what the Y is all about, simply say “the Y is for Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility!”
The Y is for everyone. Every day at our local Y, we strive to support the spiritual, mental and physical needs of individuals and families living in Portage Township, part of Union Township and eastern parts of Lake County.
Portage Firefighters Local 3151

Hoosier Burn Camp
Hoosier Burn Camp is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to providing life-changing experiences for young people who have suffered the physical and emotional trauma associated with a severe burn injury.
First conceived by the office of the Indiana State Fire Marshal and Riley Hospital for Children, Hoosier Burn Camp was founded in 1997 to extend physical and mental rehabilitation opportunities to severe burn survivors in Indiana ages 8 to 18.
Our programs were developed to combine the fun of summer camp with opportunities to build life skills that kids need to fully recover from the trauma of their burn injuries. Since 1997, we have grown to provide 12-15 programs throughout the year to burn survivors from infancy through young adulthood. Many of these programs support the entire family as well.
