WHY ST. RICHARD’S SUMMER CAMPS? St. Richard’s summer camp is the place to be this summer! The goal of SRES summer camp is to provide opportunities for children to try new things, socialize, learn and practice skills, and have fun. Our summer camp program reflects the school's values by designing week-long camps rooted in learning. We also recognize that summer is a time for children to relax and explore new adventures. We value the individual interests of each child, allowing each camper a chance at experiencing success. Weekly sessions provide children with enriching activities and give you a peace of mind that their summer will be spent in a nurturing, safe, and educational environment. All activities and field trips are designed by our trained summer administrative staff with your children in mind.

Enrollment Please keep in mind that many of our camps have minimum and maximum enrollment numbers. Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis. Space in a camp can not be reserved without a completed camp registration form and full payment. In the event that a camp fills up, your child will be put on a waiting list. Registration for all camps will close one week prior to the start of camp. Although we will do our best to accommodate everyone, space can not be guaranteed. Checks (made out to St. Richard’s Episcopal School) can be mailed to St. Richard’s Summer Camp at 33 E. 33rd Street Indianapolis, IN 46205

A Closer Look... our Mini Dragon Program We are planning a great summer for our Mini Dragons! Our Early Childhood camp features are specifically designed for younger children. In addition to offering traditional "camp like" activities, such as weekly swim lessons and crafts, we will spend a portion of each day focusing on academic skills such as letter and sound recognition, counting and math skills, and much more. Each week will have a unique theme focused around the interests of young children. Some of our themes this summer are Once Upon a Time, Under the Sea, and Digging for Dinos. Based on the week's theme, campers will participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate and fun activities. In addition to weekly field trips, every Monday we will start the week off with a special activity or guest to teach us all about our theme. Our unique blend of arts, sports, academics and cultural enrichments makes for a one of a kind summer experiences.

our Dragon Program We are gearing up for another summer of fun at St. Richard's Dragon Day Camp! Our summer curriculum is composed of weekly themes to offer your child a new and exciting experience each week. Each theme comes with specially designed field trips, games, crafts, and academic enrichment activities selected specifically with your child's age group in mind. Our weekly themes will provide many unique learning opportunities for our campers. For example, our Fun with Food camp will allow kids to be creative in the kitchen. We will travel to Traders Point Creamery to get a behind the scenes look at farming and food production and also make plenty of our own treats to bring home throughout the week! We will round out our days with traditional day camp activities such as swimming and water games, sports, team building activities, and outdoor adventure! New this summer is the addition of weekly swimming lessons to complement our free swim play, additional academic enrichment activities, and weekly visits to different exhibits at The Children's Museum.


Summer partnerships Through the Indianapolis Museum of Arts Viewfinders program, even our youngest children learn Visual Thinking Strategies to describe art. This provides the children with a common way to describe what they see and build upon the ideas of others.

Just this year, St. Richard’s library joined forces with the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library to share the wealth of materials. Students, teachers, and families now can request any of the 2.1 million books and other materials available at the Public Library and have them quickly delivered to the school.

This summer a partnership with Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation at the Monon Community Center in Carmel allows us to offer access to American Red Cross swimming lessons for all the children, ages preschool and up. American Red Cross certified instructors will be working with our campers to help develop strong, confident swimmers. Additionally, there will be time to explore many of their exciting features in the outdoor water park.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, only two blocks south of SRES, is a convenient and popular resource for all grades. Through a neighborhood partnership program, St. Richard’s can visit the museum on an unlimited basis and take advantage of its worldwide resources.
