Event Description:
Indiana Dunes State Park will offer a nature-related day camp for students ages 6 through 13 this summer.

Two sessions of the Dunes State Park Explorer Camp will be offered, each tailored to different age groups. The camps explore the dunes, its plants and animals, and our connection to the land.

Registration is required, and space is limited for each session. Each camp costs $29 per camper. The fee includes snacks, lunch on Friday, crafts and park entrance fees.

The session for campers ages 6-10 runs July 10-14.

The session for campers ages 9 to 13 runs July 24-28.

Camps meet Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to noon, and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

"The summer camp experience has become such an expensive activity," said Brad Bumgardner, park interpreter. "The costs can be prohibitive for many families. We want to see these kids get outdoors and really explore and enjoy this great area that is so close to home."

Campers wishing to register can pick up a camp flyer and registration form at the park office or nature center, or email for an electronic copy.

Funding for the summer camp comes from the Friends of Indiana Dunes State Park group. For more information, call the park’s nature center at (219) 926-1390.
