The Noblesville Parks and Recreation staff is looking to build on the success of Noble Kids Camp during its second year of offering all-day summer camps. The traditional half-day camp option is still available, but with extended full-day, week-long camps the parks offers an alternative for Noblesville parents and children.

"The new summer camp format went so well last year and provided Noblesville families with options that work with their daily schedules," said Noblesville Recreation Assistant Director Lorna Steele. "We have another great summer of fun planned that will create wonderful memories for children with the activities, games and interactions they have. We believe every child will have a great time at camp."

The day-long camps are an exciting mix of camper- and counselor-led activities centered on a wide variety of weekly themes. Campers who will be entering kindergarten through sixth grade for the 2017-2018 school year are encouraged to sign up for their favorite weekly themes or attend camp for the entire summer.

Similar to last year, the two camp host sites - Dr. James A. Dillon Park, 6001 Edenshall Lane, and Forest Park, 701 Cicero Road - will offer the same themes and similar programming making it more convenient for parents and transportation.

New this year, only Forest Park campers will have one day to swim at the Forest Park Aquatic Center. Campers will have to take a swim test to be permitted to be the lap pool. Campers will have lifeguards and will swim with a few counselors. All other campers will remain at the splash pad.

All-day camps run 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Half-day camps are available from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 4:15 p.m. Another option for parents is before/after care available starting at 7 a.m. and running until 6 p.m. One-week of summer camp costs Noblesville residents $125 for all-day ($155 for nonresidents), $60 for half-day ($75 for nonresidents). Before care is $10 and after care is $15 for the week.

"The themes and options of Noble Kids Camp provide an abundant mixture of enjoyment, physical activity, education and social interaction in the safe environments of our parks and under the watchful eye of our highly trained counselors," Noblesville Parks Director Brandon Bennett said.
