Dunes Discovery Day Camp

From the moment they arrive and tie-dye their signature t-shirts, campers hike, explore, and discover the beautiful natural landscape of Indiana Dunes National Park. During the week, they make new friends, play games, share meals and splash at the beach. Kids age 9–13 discover just how fun and exciting nature can be at this 5-day summer day camp in the National Park. Kids ages 9-13.
