Camp Goodfellow, which operated in the forests outside the Indiana Dunes from 1941-1976, represents a unique blend of Northwest Indiana's industrial and environmental cultures. It is now the location of the Indiana Dunes Environmental Learning Center. The Camp Goodfellow exhibit at the Porter County Museum displays a unique collection of artifacts and photographs that describe the social project that brought together diverse children from across the region to learn about the history and environment of the Indiana Dunes.
