NOBLESVILLE, Ind. -- It’s an all-too-familiar story: you start out with the best intentions of a fall break filled with colorful hikes, bonfires and day trips with your kids. Then, life happens and their entire break turns into a lazy week spent indoors. 

The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department is looking to disrupt the boredom and inactivity with week-long camps in conjunction with Noblesville Schools’ fall freak from October 9 through 20. Camp is available for ages 6 to 11.

The recreation staff will provide students with two weeks of games, crafts and nature. According to camp organizers, campers should pack their lunch, two snacks and wear gym shoes. Campers will have a science project, arts and crafts, and will stay active each day of camp.

“We want to keep your child’s mind and body active through their fall break. Depending on your schedule, youth can attend for just a day or all week,” said Nichole Haberlin, Noblesville Recreation Director.

Camp is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 9 through 13 and October 16 through 20 at Forest Park Lodge. The weekly cost is $125 for residents ($155 for nonresidents) and the daily rate is $30 for residents ($40 for nonresidents).

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