It's Summer Adventure Time at Indy Parks
February 01, 2011Adventure is the spice of life and Indy Parks has Day Camps that will rattle out the boredom of summer with challenges and memories to cherish forever. Time flies when you're having fun, and that is what Indy Parks provides every day to tickle the creative whims of your child and celebrate the great Parks in your neighborhood.
Indy Parks' Day Camps are located throughout Indianapolis at select family centers and parks. Camp packages include trained, qualified and friendly staff, low counselor to camper ratios to ensure your child has their focus, exciting weekly field trips, swimming, art and crafts, fascinating guest speakers, cool camp T-shirts, creative educational programs, extended care services, structured games, activities, sports and more.
Indy Parks offers a variety of specialty day camps for kids interested in arts and nature. Garfield Park has a new camp to inspire your child's creative side with professional teaching artists in a variety of media from paint to clay to paper mache. Or explore jewelry making, create a mural and draw plein aire (that's a fancy word for drawing outdoors). Check out Theatre Camp at Ellenberger Park – a one week summer workshop providing hands-on experience working side-by-side with professional actors, directors and technicians. Your child will learn memorization techniques, dialogue and develop confidence in stage presence. With the skills learned in this camp, you could start packing your bags to Hollywood!
If your child loves bugs and trees more than scripts and costumes, check out our specialty Environmental Education Day Camps at Eagle Creek, Holliday and Southeastway Parks. They are truly "crawling" with great times.
Sign up for camps called Strive to Survive and Eco-Excursions. These day camps provide kids with a week of challenges from compass courses to knot tying and various survival techniques and wilderness tips to help you on your next outdoor adventure!
Indy Parks hasn't forgotten about your precious little preschoolers. We offer camps called Wiggle Worms and Habitat Hunt for exploring creatures in their habitats, playing games, reading stories, making crafts and exploring the great outdoors.
All camps are American Camp Association (ACA) accredited and all staff are First Aid and CPR certified. Registration begins Monday, Jan. 31. Call 327-PARK or walk-in to any Indy Parks Day Camp site to register and check out these camps and much more in the 2011 Indy Parks Day Camps Guide available at www.indyparks.org.
