Adventure Learning Summer Camp

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.

We Explore

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.

We Create

Being creative is a core theme of adventure learning camp. We make art and music. We write and perform songs and puppet shows. We dance, make video projects, and more.

We Build

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.

We Hike

As often as possible, we hit a trail. Eagle Creek is our favorite spot, but there are many trailheads nearby.

We Swim

Once a week, typically on Fridays, weather permitting, we will travel to a pool here in Indy to swim. We go to different Indianapolis City Parks pools, and some private facilities.  At the pool we break into two groups, preschool and elementary/middle school ages.

We Do Science

Experiential exploration is at the heart of our activities. We apply the scientific method to an array of domains.

We Jam

At camp, we set up keyboards, drums, and guitar amps inside or outside, depending on the weather. Campers rotate learning and making beats on the drums, as well as learning guitar and keyboard techniques. When everyone is ready, we bring together bands and jam.

We Perform

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. Some weeks, we have scheduled performances near the end of the week.

We Play

We have an awesome playground in our backyard, plus we visit nearby playgrounds and parks. We also play games, in-house.

COVID-19

If Summer Camp 2021 is cancelled due to COVID positivity rates being too high to safely bring children together, we will refund your $50 weekly deposits, and any other camp fees paid ahead.
