The School of Health & Human Sciences is responsible for the education of students with diverse passions and backgrounds. From exercise science to sports management to nutrition and dietetics, we cover a lot of ground. It’s our responsibility to ensure all our students leave here fully armed and confident with the skills and knowledge they need to take on their careers. And we need your help to do that.
If you’re recent alumni, we thank you for your continued dedication to our school, and we hope you understand in a special way the impact your support has on our current students. If you’re a long-time supporter, we can’t express our gratitude enough for your commitment to our school. No matter who you are, we value you.

Since the School of Health & Human Sciences was entrusted with camp management responsibilities by the IU Board of Trustees in 2005, more than two million dollars have been invested in accommodation and facility upgrades, giving all guests and students new beds; better living spaces; a great guest lounge and gift shop; educational equipment such as the challenge course; physical activity options like key log rollers, kayaks, and low-impact watercraft; and so much more.
These accomplishments are significant, and we are grateful to all our treasured Camp Brosius donors -- from children who have saved money to donate to camp's playground renovations to those who have named areas or contributed to specific upgrades to our Elkhart Lake community friends. Each and every gift is important and has an immediate and lasting impact.
In addition to annual progress, long-term philanthropic support is key to camp's sustainability. Recently, generous donors created an endowment that solidifies possibilities and creates opportunities for camp's future. Raising funds for the Camp Brosius endowment is, consequently, one of the School of Health & Human Science'sIU Bicentennial Campaign key priority areas.

Your gift. Your impact.
I appreciate beyond words the willingness of donors to continue to support the students in SHHS.
Because I have been the lucky recipient of several awards, I feel a personal responsibility to do the same for other students in the future.
