How about a day camp at McCloud Nature Park?Day Camp at McCloud Nature Park

Kids ages 8-12: ever wonder what it was like on the frontier? Do you have what it takes to live on the frontier? Join Hendricks County Parks & Recreation naturalists on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McCloud Nature Park outside of North Salem for Spring Break Day Camp: Trackers and Trappers. Participants will learn exciting and challenging frontier skills such as animal tracking, pelt identification and crafting.

This four-hour day camp costs $25 a person. Day campers should bring a water bottle and a well-marked sack lunch and should wear closed-toed shoes and dress for the weather (which is looking great so far in the forecast!).

Advance registration is required by midnight on Tuesday, so make sure you click here to register!

Steppin' in Shades of Blue Elite Experience

Get those dancing shoes out of the closet and head to the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Plainfield for the Steppin' in Shades of Blue Elite Experience this Friday through Sunday.

Steppin' in Shades of Blue, Inc., is a not-for-profit, community outreach organization creating healthy lifestyles through dance to address obesity, lack of exercise and unhealthy diets in low-income areas. Volunteers work with food pantries and local grocery stores to provide nutritional food donations within the communities. 

This weekend's Elite Experience annual event is a fundraiser toward these goals and promises attendees a weekend of sophistication, fine dining and plenty of dancing! Dancing instructors will be on-hand to provide lessons, there will be parties, dinners, a brunch and even a worship service.
