Indy’s Child Parenting Magazine has a summer camp fair every year and there is one coming up this Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Fashion Mall! Some more information from the Indy’s Child website (http://www.indyschild.com/SitePage-18776.114134-Camp-Fair.html):
The 24th Annual Summer Camp Fair
On February 23, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Fashion Mall, families from all over Central Indiana will have the opportunity to explore over 70 overnight camps, day camps and summer programs at the 24th Annual Camp Fair, hosted by Indy’s Child. If you are looking for a camp or summer program for your child, exhibitors will be on-hand to answer your many questions face-to-face.
At our 24th Annual Camp Fair, you can plan your child’s summer of fun all in one day. To top it off, we will provide lots of fun entertainment from Radio Disney, face painters, our prize wheel, and much more! Each child can also get a ‘photo-op’ on an Indy’s Child cover! Plan a summer of fun all in one day!
Every summer we look at different camp options. Last year my oldest son attended Interactive Academy. They have different options for summer camps with different themes. Typically one day is 9 am to 3 pm for summer camp. You can choose an option of two days, three days or five days. There is also an option for an earlier drop-off time and a later pick up time. Interactive Academy also has a Moms Day Out if a summer camp option is too long of a day for you. There is a discount of $20 for registering for camp early by March 4. The latest brochure can be found here: http://www.interactiveacademy.com/downloadables/Camps/2013%20Summer%20Camp%20Brochure.pdf and information about the Moms Day Out program: http://www.interactiveacademy.com/downloadables/Mothers%20Day%20Out/MDO%20Reading%20Math%20Enrichment%20SUMMER%202013.pdf.
My oldest has also enjoyed summer camp at Traders Point Christian Church: http://www.tpcs.org/camps.asp
We have also enjoyed taking classes at A Space to Create Art in Zionsville and would highly recommend looking at their camp options as well: http://www.aspacetocreateart.com/Summer_Art_Camps.html
