The park district’s summer camps have been a staple in the Anderson community since 1984, and are a great way for kids to spend their summer vacation. A variety of options are offered for children ages 3½–12. Camp counselors are carefully selected to provide fun, safe and meaningful camp experiences.
Each camp has enrollment limits and registration is first-come, first-served.
