Summer Day Camp: Get Messy! (10 a.m. or 1 p.m.)

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Summer camps return to McCloud Nature Park, and they are better than ever! All camps focus on one topic for that week and include hands-on activities, games, crafts, and more! All camps are taught by Hendricks County Parks & Recreation naturalists who have passed background checks and have experience in teaching campers of all ages.
Advance registration is required for all camps. On-site registration is not available. Registration is now OPEN, and many of our camps fill up very quickly, so don’t delay!
Please feel free to contact us at mccloudnp@hcparks.net or at (765) 676-5437 with any questions or concerns.
