Bellaboo’s creative, colorful, interactive design lets kids do what they do best – play. But they also learn as they play. Designed especially for ages 9 and younger, children experience Bellaboo’s pretend village as well as room after room of activities like water table, train play, face painting, pizza parlor, grocery store, art studio, pet vet, multi-level play structure and much more. Birthday parties, events, school and group curriculum, and a family-friendly café put Bellaboo’s on your must-experience list.

2021 Camp FAQs

Wait? I thought you were closed on Mondays?

Bellaboo’s is closed to general admission on Mondays allowing our camp crew plenty of space to spread out and PLAY!

What’s the lunch situation?

Pack a sack lunch because Campers will break for lunch at around 11:30 each day.

Are masks going to be required during camp?

As of right now, in following with state and local guidelines campers will be required to wear a mask. Our staff will also be masked throughout camp while interacting with one another, you, and your child.

Only if Indiana guidelines change between now and June 7th will we re-evaluate our mask policy.

What other safety measures are in place

Our commitment to cleanliness remains well intact. In addition, we’ll prioritize outdoor play when the weather allows, emphasize hand cleaning, and employ social distancing protocols when masks can’t be worn.
