Camp week will wrap up with a field day of all games for campers to compete in a mini-tournament.  

Make a Mess! 

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Make it fun, but make it messy! Campers will explore a week filled with hands-on, mess-making activities centered around splatter-paint techniques, sensory-play activities, mud study. We'll wrap up the week with a color run, where all finishers are doused with colored powder.  

Curious Critters 

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Beavers, birds, and bears, oh my! Does your curious kid love the world of animals? Join us as we explore the way animals do, with activities and special guests to learn more about animals and insects native to Fishers.  

Art in the Parks  

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Vincent Van Gogh once said, "Art is but imitation of nature." Find inspiration, creation, and nature all in one place as campers will use their park's setting to create art in many forms. From fairy-garden making, to landscape painting, campers will learn various art techniques to capture the park around them.  

Aviation Exploration 

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! Take flight, and create model aircraft to launch into the sky! Experiment with aircraft construction, rocket launching, kite making, frisbee games, and archery as your camper learns the ins and outs of soaring through the air.

Rhythm Rover 

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Movers and shakers are invited to listen to and create music in nature. Campers will be shown how to make instruments with alternative materials, study vibrations and sounds in nature, and “rock” out with our special musical guests. This camp is designed to resonate with your mini-musician.  

Mini Maker Challenge  

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Mini makers will be given unique challenges and given tools, materials, and guidance to solve their problem. Using their crafting skills, mini makers will create a solution and present their finished product. Campers can expect to face hands-on challenges to repurpose everyday materials, learn construction basics, create items with found materials, and upcycle. This camp will stretch your mini-maker's creative muscle and help them learn to problem solve in their own unique way. 

Parks Pathfinder    

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Learn how to traverse the outdoors, treasure hunt, and identify landmarks, roads, and landscapes. Exploring can be fun and campers will guide the way. This camp features activities that instruct campers how to read a map and navigate their way through Fishers Parks using a compass. At the end of the week, campers will use their skills to set out on an “Amazing Race” across Fishers Parks.

Creature Carpentry 

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
Learn how to build structures like animals do! Drawing inspiration from nesting birds, burrowing ants, and suspended spiders, campers will recreate animal-built structures and learn to build their own tepee or alternative-housing structure. For the kid who enjoys engineering, stacking, building, and arranging, you won’t want to miss this nature-infused carpentry camp.   

Ninja Warrior 

*Offered at Fishers Parks and HSE camps
For the couch-jumping, monkey-bar-climbing, obstacle-making, and race-to-the-finish kids who like to climb the unconventional.

Campers will participate in balance challenges, obstacle making, and creative climbing in their park.

Lil’ Green Thumbs

*Only at the Fishers AgriPark.
Lil’ Green Thumbs will explore various planting techniques and how tending to plants and food can take place in a variety of alternative environments.

Campers can revisit their camp garden to tend to over the course of the summer and see what sprouts! 

Soil Science

We All Scream for Ice Cream!

*Only at the Fishers AgriPark.
In honor of National Dairy Month in June, we will be celebrating by exploring all that the dairy industry has to offer! Campers will learn the dairy industry from the local to global scale - from animal care, to products made from dairy, to the science behind how each product is made from milk. 

Animal Caretaking

*Only at the Fishers AgriPark.
Calling all future veterinarians and animal lovers! Discover everything there is to know about our beloved animals at the AgriPark.

Machines & Technology

Tools and tinkering are not reserved just for the woodshop! Campers will explore old and new technology on the farm, featuring machines of old and the modern day that help farmers make the most of their time. Campers will explore machines used every season at the AgriPark - from a disc and rototiller to a Case 70A tractor - to build their own model tractor.  

Cultivating Chefs

*Only at the Fishers AgriPark.
