Summer day camps for kids at Salamonie Lake

Salamonie Lake is holding two summertime day camps for children ages 7-11.

“Horse Lovers” day camp runs June 28-30 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Day campers don’t need to be horse owners to participate in this camp. Children will learn about and see different breeds of horses. Proper horse care and grooming will be taught by experienced horse owners. During the final day of camp participants will have the opportunity to saddle and ride on a horse or pony.

“Wetland Wanderings” day camp will be held Aug. 3-5. Campers will be studying wetland plants and animals with hands-on activities. The camp runs from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. each day. Activities include a canoeing session and daily crafts and hikes for participants.

Camps will be led by experienced interpretive naturalists. Each camp is $45 per child with a discount for siblings.

Registration is required and space is limited. A snack will be provided. Children need to bring a sack lunch with drink each day.
