Kids imagine, laugh, and learn at Camp Minnetrista!

Muncie, IN—Camp Minnetrista offers children two weeks of interactive play and adventure this June, for an educational and fun experience!

Campers will meet new friends, engage in fun indoor and outdoor games, and explore a variety of themes including bugs, the environment, art, nature, and helping local community. One and two week camp options are available for a summer adventure your child won’t soon forget!

Camp Minnetrista Week 1: Outdoor Adventure

Your child will explore the environment through nature hikes, Nature Area pond investigation, Bugs: Outside the Box and Wicked Bugs exhibit discovery, and participation in a live bat program! Campers will get creative by painting with nature’s tools, making spider web dream catchers, assembling colorful flower bookmarks, and more.

Camp Minnetrista Week 2: Community Adventure

Campers will discover how to make positive choices for themselves and the local community! Your child will dehydrate snack foods, preserve tasty jelly and applesauce, create glass art, and explore the ins and outs of nature. Minnetrista Theatre Preserves will perform The Tortoise, The Hare, and Other Aesop’s Fables and the Animal Rescue Fund will teach children about helping animals in an interactive presentation.

Camp Minnetrista is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each week. The cost is $180 per child, per week. Register before June 9 to reserve your child’s place in this exciting camp adventure! 

Sign your kids up for one or two weeks of education and fun all in one!
