Join the Group/Get Involved

Midwest I-Child Namaste adoptive families
While there are many families that come every year and plan their winters and summers around our gatherings, new families attend and are welcomed openly into the community every year. We try to do a little of everything: group games, crafts, shopping, swimming, hiking, golf, bonfires, culture, movies, food, dancing, laughter, and socializing.

This is a 100% volunteer, unincorporated and non-profit enterprise run by the parents and children who attend. Planning for upcoming events generally occurs in open meetings held at the end of the summer and winter events. Veteran and new attendees alike provide valuable insight and feedback as we constantly strive to improve our events to meet the evolving needs and desires of the group. We ask that all adults and older children volunteer and help out as much as they are able.

In addition to having fun, effort is made each year to raise money 
for designated charities through our gathering bazaar and other fundraisers. In the past we have supported kids with HIV at Basundhara in Cuttack, Orissa. Currently, we sponsor Anshu (through Open Arms India), donate to Good News Home in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, and donate to INDUS of Appleton, WI.
