About the Walk

The 5K Walk for Youth brings together our community — individuals, families, organizations, local businesses and corporations — to support the 2020 New Adventures Summer Camp for at-risk youth at The Children’s Home.  This year’s event is Saturday, May 2nd, 9:00a-12:00p (rain or shine).  It is our goal that the 5K Walk for Youth fully fund the cost of the 2020 New Adventures Summer Camp.  The cost of providing specialized care and activities for 50+ at-risk middle and high school students is estimated to be $25,000.

The Walk meanders through Catonsville’s neighborhoods and charming downtown.  The primary course is 5km, but there are 3k and 7k options for those with different abilities.  All courses begin and end on the Home’s campus at 205 Bloomsbury Avenue in Catonsville.  At the finish line, walkers can enjoy refreshments, music, face painting, art projects, horse rides, and more.

New Adventures Summer Camp

The 5K Walk for Youth benefits The Children’s Home 11-week New Adventures Summer Camp, which includes arts & crafts, music, sports, horseback riding, cookouts, gardening, swimming, and field trips for at-risk youth.  Summer campers enjoy activities and challenges that build character, and the Home’s staff focus on creating personalized experiences to grow each camper’s self-confidence and life skills.
