Organizers say spots are filling up for Indy Parks summer day camps – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather forecast

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — More than 3,000 children participate in Indy Parks Day Camps every summer and spots have been filling up since registration opened last week, according to Courtney Rogers, public information officer for Indy Parks.

There are 15 campsites and each runs from May to July. Each camp offers different themes including arts, nature, science and sports. There are also camps adapted for people with disabilities.

The age of the camps varies from 4 to 18 years old. Rogers says there will be mask-wearing, social distancing and cleaning-in-place precautions.

“We try to create a family atmosphere, we try to make sure that the children have fun, that they remain children,” said Shawn Coward, the park manager for the village of Windsor. “Don’t steal their childhood, let them have fun. If they want to go out there and run and explore, let them go run and explore because that’s part of childhood, it’s part of growing up.

“We’re really excited to let you know that registration is open,” added Rogers. “There are a lot of different opportunities for kids at Indy Parks this summer and if you can’t afford it, consider scholarships. We really want to make summer camp accessible to as many children as possible. »

Rogers says families can apply for scholarships based on financial need.

Bursaries can fund between 50% and 100% of summer day camp costs.
