Our summer camp offers a relaxed environment for campers ages 3-14. The Preschool group will generally follow and explore the same weekly activities as older campers. We offer an environment with myriad learning opportunities. Camp activities include art, music, games, drama, swimming, field trips, and many outdoor activities. Campers may also participate in the library’s summer reading program.
Day Camp is limited to 30 campers.
Preschool campers must be potty trained.
Everyday is an opportunity for campers to go on a new adventure and to learn new things. We visit playgrounds and parks, and learn about indigenous animals and birds of Indiana.
Being creative is a core theme of our camp. We make art and music. We write and perform songss. We dance, make video projects, and more.
In addition to friendships, we build stuff, such as architectural structures, performance sets, and art objects. Campers learn how to upcycle common items and incorporate them along with traditional media to make truly original creations, including musical instruments. Campers are provided space to enact their ideas.
As often as possible, we hit a trail. Eagle Creek is our favorite spot, but there are many trailheads nearby. For swimming, we usually go to the Riviera Club, or different splash pads at the city parks in Indianapolis and Zionsville.
Over the course of the summer, we take multiple trips to Saddle Up Stables in Danville, IN. Older campers get to ride horses.
We live in a world of instruments...guitars, ukes, drum set (often set up in the backyard), hand percussion, a wurlitzer organ, pianos/keyboards, Orff xylophones, boomwhackers, and more. We have learning sessions, offer free time to experiment with instruments, and jam time to learn to play music with others.
Performance can happen at any time. From a recitation of a poem to a drum solo or puppet performance, campers are encouraged to perform for their peers.
We have an awesome playground in our backyard, plus we visit nearby playgrounds and parks. We also play games, in-house.
One of our favorite field trips is to the library, either the Michigan Road Branch or Central Library downtown. Campers may check out age-level books. Campers may also participate in enrichment programs the library offers, such as BookIt, their summer reading program.
