It includes a tricycle track, a basketball court, a soccer field, and numerous age appropriate playground equipment. Typically, children will be outside at least 3 times per day for a period of time that is appropriate for their age group.
Does the camp provide lunch/snacks or do parents need to provide them?
Kiddie Academy provides a morning and afternoon snack as well as a hot lunch that is prepared on-site daily. We also provide campers who arrive prior to or at 8:00 a.m. with breakfast at no additional charge. We do encourage each camper to bring a water bottle to use throughout the day.

How old are the counselors and how are they trained?
All of our teachers/counselors meet and/or exceed the educational requirements established by the State of Indiana. Many of our teachers/counselors have their Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and/or Elementary Education or their CDA. All of our employees must successfully complete employee orientation as well as several on-line training courses prior too engaging with any of our campers.
Will the Kiddie Academy be taking any field trips to venues away from the Academy?
At this time, we are working under the assumption that the restrictions currently in place limiting social gatherings and events will be lifted by the second week in June. As a result, we are planning field trips. However, we will abide by the regulations and recommendations of the CDC and the Hamilton County Health Department in place at the time of the proposed field trip.
