Join us for our FREE summer long playground recreation program. Columbus Parks and Recreation is happy to offer this free summer-long summer camp experience! Join us for this free summer camp experience, complete with a daily, free lunch! Children from all over the community are invited for a summer of fieldtrips, recreational games, sports, crafts, etc. at Donner Park! Camp is ran and monitored by our staff of summer camp counselors out of Donner Shelter! Come Out and Play campers will have a weekly visit from the Bartholomew County Public Library and the Book Express on Mondays, swim at the Donner Aquatic Center on Tuesdays and visit different field trip locations every Thursday. Children can be signed in and dropped off at the Donner Shelter, or busses will pick and drop off children at our neighborhood park pick up points.

Pick-Up/Drop-Off Points

Campers need to be ready for pick-up at 1pm. Parents should expect them to be dropped off between 4:45 and 5pm.

A parent or guardian must be available on the morning of the first day of their child’s (or children’s) participation to sign a field trip form.
