Fishers Summer Camps: Experience Nature in Fishers

Fishers summer camps take place within the beautiful and extensive grounds maintained by the Fishers Parks and Recreation Department. With twelve parks and more than 300 acres of land, the quickly growing green spaces are keeping pace with the quickly growing population of Fishers, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis.

Among the many community activities that go on all year round in Fishers parks, there are nine official Fishers summer camps providing fun, supervised play and learning for Fishers children during the summer. Below is a list of the nine programs, with a brief description of each:

Adventure Club – Just for kids from seven to nine years old. The counselor to camper ratio is a low one to nine, with a maximum enrollment of eighteen.
