Kid City Summer Camps for youth in grades K-7 take place at the Allison-Jukebox Community Center, 351 S. Washington St. in Bloomington, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Week-long day camp sessions for the 2020 camp season begin Monday, June 1 and end Friday, July 31.

Kid City Original and Kid City Quest are now: Kid City! For youth in grades K through 7.

Kid City has followed the stringent guidelines for day camp safety set forth by the American Camp Association, the Centers for Disease Control, the State of Indiana and the Monroe County Health Department to provide a modified Kid City camp this summer. 

Campers will engage in outdoor play and other camp activities on-site at the Allison-Jukebox Community Center.

Campers this summer will be placed into small groups, called "pods", and will be divided by family and not by age so we can keep siblings together and stay consistent in minimizing the expansion of social circles. We will follow physical distancing guidelines as much as possible. There are no overnights or field trips this season.

Drop Off Procedures

  • Campers must be dropped off before 9 a.m. If a parent is running late/early they are required to call the facility and inform for approval of change.
  • Parents/guardians will remain in their vehicle until the front desk staff confirm their child's registration.
  • Upon confirmation of registration, camp staff will take the parent/guardian's temperature while they remain in the vehicle. The participant's temperature will also be taken while remaining in the vehicle.
  • Upon completion of health screening, participants will be escorted into the facility by a staff member and then directed to where they will sanitize hands following the CDC protocol and sent to their designated program area.

Pick Up Procedures

  • Parents/guardians should park near the designated entrance to help with verification and safety for the release of the participant(s).
  • Upon confirmation of identity, staff will radio the health care worker in the outdoor tent who will administer temperature/screening of the parent/guardian.
  • Once screening is complete, the participant will be allowed to enter the parent/guardian vehicle and leave the program.
  • If possible, older people such as grandparents should not pick up children, because older people are more at risk for serious illness.
