Registration is under way for Fishers Parks and Recreation 2019 summer camps.
More than 36 full- and half-day camps are offered for children ages 4 to 12. Camps are available for fitness, art, nature programming and STEM.
Sessions will be themed based on coding, cooking and science.
“We work every year to offer a variety of different programs, so there is something for everyone,” said Sarah Sandquist, director of Fishers Parks and Recreation. “We survey the families each year to see what they liked or didn’t like. This allows us to offer different programs each year.”
Camps take place at locations throughout Fishers.
“We have camps at Billericay Park, Holland Park, Ritchey Woods and Cumberland Park,” Sandquist said.
Fishers Parks and Recreation also offers partner camps with other local organizations, such as Rocky Ripple Mobile Arts.
“This year we have an Indy Eleven soccer camp,” Sandquist said. “We think it’s important to offer camps that not only focus on art and nature, but also STEM, so parents feel their kids are learning while having fun.”
Free and reduced summer camp rates are available for Hamilton Southeastern Schools students enrolled in the free- or reduced-lunch program.
Each registered camper will receive a T-shirt. Camps will be facilitated by young adults.
“Fishers Parks and Recreation’s camp counselors are the best and brightest young adults in the community,” said Kara Hall, marketing and public relations manager for Fishers Parks and Recreation. “All counselors have experience working with children, have completed CPR training and first aid certification and have passed a criminal background check.”
