Fort Wayne, Ind.—The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department’s newest summer camp is all about our rivers, the role they have played in the history of our city and how they are still used today. Campers will gain a better understanding of our rivers, their challenges and their benefits, as well as an enthusiasm for our waterways. It’s a week of exciting games, water activities and even science experiments. The Allen County Partnership for Water Quality, or ACPWQ, is partnering directly with the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department in the creation of this engaging educational camp.
Camp will be held at Shoaff Park Riverlodge on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and Thursday will be a special day of fun in downtown Fort Wayne. Ages 8-12. Fee: $100.
Call 427-6000 to sign up or register on-line at www.fortwayneparks.org. Registration deadline: June 11. Space is limited, so register now!
Rivercamp is made possible through the Allen County Partnership for Water Quality, the IPFW Environmental Resource Center and the Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Department. Other partners include: North East Indiana Water Trails, Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, Historic Fort Wayne, Allen County Parks, Riverfront Fort Wayne, Fort Wayne Solid Waste and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Tri-State Watershed Alliance.
