A look at some of the camps being offered for children this summer:
Fishers Parks opened registration for its summer camps earlier this month. Camps are available for children ages 4 to 14 and follow various themes such as “Year in a Week,” “Let’s Get Messy,” “Amazing Animals” and more. There also is an Indy Eleven soccer camp for ages 8 to 14.
In an effort to prevent spread of COVID-19, all camp counselors and campers will be screened daily and also have their temperature taken. All camp counselors are required to wear a mask for the duration of the camp day, and all campers are required to wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.
All camp counselors must pass a criminal background check and are required to complete more than 40 hours of training. Head counselors must undergo an additional vehicular background check. Additional camp safety procedures include on-site medical forms and photo identification for child sign-out.
