Camp Guidelines

With Indiana’s stay-at-home order lifted, Fishers Parks is moving forward with July summer camps with a focus on delivering the high quality and safe programming our families expect while following health and safety guidelines.

Camp may look different this year with the implementation of CDC policies and guidelines concerning the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. 

This summer’s camp experience will focus more on open air and space activities. We will do our best to limit time inside our facility buildings to promote healthy, fun camp experiences. Each week and location will see more water play and group activities that allow for physical distancing.

2020 Summer Camp COVID-19 Policies Include:

Before Camp

  • A camp pre-screening document will be sent for parents/guardians to fill out before camp begins

Upon Arrival
