Summer Camp

Our summer program begins on June 10 this year.
Camp activities: 9:00a.m. until 4:00p.m.
Extended Hours: 7:00a.m. until 5:45p.m.

Summer Camp Ages 3-14

The summer camp offers a relaxed camp environment for campers of all ages. Younger children will generally follow and explore the same weekly themed activities as older campers. We offer an environment free of competition. Camp activities include art, drama, games, recreational 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.

Session 1

6/10 to 6/14: Playground Connoisseur

This was a big hit last summer!  Campers will have the city and surrounding area playgrounds to explore.  We will compare and contrast, review and report, and rant the best and the worst places a kid in our city can play.

6/17 to 6/21:  Footprints and Flight

We’ve combined the best of two of our most popular camp weeks!  Campers will explore animal tracks while studying indigenous birds of Indiana.

6/24 to 6/28:  Build It

The students set contracts for class attendance with their homeroom teacher to guide their required work, to balance their general work, and to teach them to become responsible for their own time management and education.

7/1 to 7/5:  Musical Movements

Campers will learn about styles of music.  They will play guitars, drums, xylophones, and keyboards, creating their own songs.  We will wrap up the week with a group performance. (No camp on July 4th!)

7/8 to 7/12:  Animals in Our World

This week we will learn about the animals we share our world with, particularly in Indiana.  We will visit the Nature Center at Eagle Creek.  We will also take a field trip to the Children of Indiana Nature Park, in Centerville, Indiana

Session 2

7/15 to 7/19:  Sports Week

This whole week is dedicated to playing sports.  We will also spend time learning the rules for various sports, some famous athletes in each sport, and which sports are most popular in different parts of the world.  But mostly, we will be playing and winning at all of the sports!

7/22 to 7/26:  Get Your Game On

A favorite for many!  Campers will learn a wide variety of different games, including, card games, dice games, board games, and video games, during this gaming extravaganza!

7/29 to 8/2:  Puppets in Motion

Campers will learn how to make stop-motion animation, using puppets they design and make themselves.  They will bring their imaginations to life.

8/5 to 8/9:  The Art of Junk

Campers will re-purpose trash and recycling items to create a variety of truly original art projects, including musical instruments!

8/12 to 8/16:  Arts and Entertainment

Together, campers will explore the basics of theater, film, and television, and the history of entertainment in the American culture.  We may visit art galleries, take in a movie, view a documentary, or watch a live band perform.
