Calling all Campers to Indy Parks!
Day camps that will rattle the boredom out of your summer

February 01, 2012

Adventure 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 & 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 staffers inspire your child’s creative side by taking the stage and working with puppets in the “Theatre Arts Discovery” camp. “Paint-a-Palooza” camp teaches basic painting skills with murals and games – getting messy is mandatory!

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! Fascinated by birds, fish or other creatures? Our outdoor adventure camps are geared toward your interests!

Indy Parks hasn’t forgotten about your precious little preschoolers. We offer camps called “Wiggle Worms” and “Animal Adventures” for exploring creatures in their habitats, playing games, reading stories, making crafts and exploring the great outdoors.

Camps are American Camp Association (ACA) accredited and all staff are First Aid and CPR certified. Registration begins Monday, Jan. 30. Call 327-PARK or walk-in to any Indy Parks Day Camp site to register. Check out these camps and much more in the 2012 Indy Parks Day Camps Guide available at
