Kid City Camp Information

  • Is your child ready for summer camp?
  • All Kid City Original and Quest programs are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. This nationally recognized accreditation focuses on program quality, health and safety issues, and requires us to review every facet of our operation. Kid City has voluntarily submitted to this independent appraisal done by camp experts and has earned this mark of distinction.
  • Our camp staff are enthusiastic, well-trained adults. All staff are CPR and First Aid certified and adhere to the highest professional standards set forth by the American Camp Association and the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department.
  • Parents are responsible for transporting their child/ren to and from camp each day. Once at camp, city buses and passenger vans are used to transport campers to and from field trips that are not within walking distance. Only trained, licensed drivers transport campers.
  • Please bring to camp a sack lunch and water bottle, swimsuit and towel, and any special sunscreen, bug spray or medications. We recommend providing your camper with a durable backpack to carry these items. Do not bring money, toys, or cell phones.
