We're looking forward to another great summer of day camps! Eagle Creek Park hosts summer day camps at two locations within the park, the Earth Discovery Center (EDC) and the Ornithology Center (OC). Both locations get campers outside and provide a learning experience that can’t be matched by traditional camps.
Camp registration begins on Monday, January 22, 2018 at 8am. You can register for camps online at http://www.indyparks.org or you can call the center where you would like to attend camp begining at 9am on Monday.

Ornithology Center: 317-327-BIRD(2473)
All camps are student-only camps; parents are welcome to enjoy the park and facilities. Siblings are not allowed unless they are registered and of the same age group. Many camps fill up fast so register early. For more information about all our camps view our printable daycamp brochure or scroll down this page.
