As part of a mission to end bullying, The Adventures of Timmy Tumbully Foundation is holding an open house on Oct. 27 to debut the “You Belong” Camp for children.
The goal of The Adventures of Timmy Tumbully Foundation, Inc is “to inspire change through the arts by writing stories and music that can change the world.” Founder Kati Hendricks, along with team members Tara Hayes and Betsy Walter, hope that by hosting the “You Belong” Camp, they will provide a safe-haven for those who have been bullied, as well as a place of self-awareness for those who have bullied.
The Adventures of Timmy Tumbully is a book series about the hero’s encounters with bullying and struggles with standing up for others who are being bullied.
The launch of the camp will wrap up National Bullying Prevention Month from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 27 at the Creekside Riding Academy & Stables, 2359 Lewisburg Pike, Franklin.
“You Belong” Camp activities include arts & crafts, face painting, horse therapy, a performance by country star Audra McLaughlin from NBC’s The Voice, and re enactment of scenes from The Adventures of Timmy Tumbully book series describing different bullying situations and how to address them, as well as scenes from the Turnbully musicals.
The Camp will also serve as a sanctuary for children with ADD, ADHD and Autism, who are often subjects of bullying, building confidence through various activities.
This launch event is open to the public and for children of all ages. The Adventures of Timmy Tumbully Foundation, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To sign up for the “You Belong” Anti-bullying Camp Open House and for additional information, go to www.timmytumbully.org.
