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.

January 10, 2020 update:
Construction to renovate the RecPlex will impact the 2020 Summer Day Camp program. We continue to carefully consider program modifications that would also meet the quality standards our camp families are accustomed to. To be as upfront as possible: at this point we are not entirely sure we will have Summer Day Camp.
Our goal is to provide an update by early February on this page. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through our options.

Half-day camps are 9:30 a.m.-noon, Monday-Thursday, at Veterans Park and Kellogg Park. Campers enjoy crafts, games, snacks, and special theme days.
