Summer Camps in and around Indianapolis

I'm always sharing information with my friends and comparing notes.  It's the best way to find out about a school or class or camp, right?  So instead of doing the same research and checking over and over each year, I made a list.  Many of these camps I have used or they have been recommended by friends.  If you have any great recommendations, let me know and I'll add them.  This list will also be kept in the "Mom Resources" section of the blog.
