Week 1 002 slide

Come explore the city and discover fun in Fort Wayne and surrounding areas. Each week of camp incorporates a different theme through field trips, guest speakers, activities, games, and arts and crafts. Kids will do a little gardening and compare life inside and outside the city. Camp also includes a Citilink bus ride to Northside pool for some fun in the sun. Join us for one week or all six as we explore downtown, admire wild animals up close, make art, and learn how life was way back when. Pick your weeks and get your adventure started. Limit 24 campers per week.
