Parents still have time to sign up their children in kindergarten through sixth grade for week-long staycations.

The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department is offering full-day, week-long camps in conjunction with Noblesville Schools' Spring Break from March 27 through April 7.

The recreation staff will provide two weeks of games, crafts, nature, laughter and friendship. Campers should pack their lunch, two snacks, a water bottle and wear gym shoes. Campers will have a science project, arts and crafts, and will stay active each day of camp.

"I love our Spring Break Camp option because it really caters to those who do not have travel plans and those that do," said Lorna Steele, assistant recreation director. "It is a really great way to switch up a child's schedule, give them something fun and active to do, have them interact with different kids and ultimately, experience new and fun things during Spring Break. The options are very flexible, if you just need an option for your child a few days or all week long we can accommodate you."

Camp is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 27 through 31 and April 3 through 7 at Forest Park Lodge. The weekly cost is $125 for residents ($155 for nonresidents). Noblesville Parks also offers a day option which is $30 for residents and $40 for nonresidents.

Before and after care is available at daily and weekly rates. Before care from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. is $10 for the week or $2 per day. After care from 4:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. is $15 for the week or $3 per day.
