DECATUR - The Macon County Conservation District is offering a wide variety of summer camps this year for children beginning June 6.

Officials say "Earth Adventures" will return as a full-day nature camp from June 6 through August 12.  Kids ages six through 12 will be able to participate in individually themed, week-long camps, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  Campers will need to bring their own lunches, and the cost to participate is $115 per camper per week.  "Adventure Club" will also be offered during the same dates, taking place on Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., and is designed for kids ages five through 12.  The fee to attend this camp is $12 per camper per week.

The history-themed "Pioneer Adventure Camp" will be held on Thursday mornings, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., in June and July.  During this camp, kids ages six through 12 will learn more about the life and times of different U.S. Presidents.  The fee to attend is $12 per camper per week.

For those seeking more adventure, the district is offering four "X-treme Camp" day trips for kids ages 10 through 15.  Activities will include two different horseback riding trips on June 17 and July 22, a trip to the Indianapolis Zoo on June 24, and canoeing on July 15.  Each trip will cost $60, which covers the cost of all activities and transportation.
