Passport to Summer: A Free Kids Program

“Passport to Summer Fun” is a new FREE program for kids from ages 1-12.  Kids accompanied by their parents can pick up their free “passport” at the Michigan City Parks & Recreation Department (located in the lower level of City Hall at 100 E Michigan Blvd #2). 

There are 10 locations listed inside the passport for kids to visit.  Seven of the locations are parks:  Gardena, Hansen, Winding Creek Cove, Joe Hawkins, Pullman, Oak Hills, and Water Tower Park.  At these locations, kids are asked to find the “passport” sign posted near the entrance of each park on a bollard (a small wooden pole), do the activity listed on the sign, and draw in the symbol in their passport for that particular park.  There are challenge activities listed on the signs for those who want more of a challenge.

Two locations listed will issue a sticker to the passport holder once they complete the activity.  At the Washington Park Zoo kids will receive an owl coloring sheet or an owl craft kit to complete at home along with their sticker.  At the M.C. Municipal Golf Course kids will have an opportunity to sink a putt to receive their sticker.  Upon completion of all locations, participants will return their completed passports to the Park Office to receive their final “stamp” and pick up their completion prize.  In addition, if they return their owl coloring page or owl kit, the Washington Park zoo will display their art work in the education center.  Kids be sure to put your first name on your artwork so your family can see it when they visit the zoo.

This program runs through the end of October and all passports must be turned in by Friday, November 4th to redeem prize.  For more information, contact the Michigan City Parks & Recreation Department at 219-873-1506.
