Full-Day Recreation Camps 

With four sites across New Castle County, our campers get to enjoy a variety of weekly themes focusing on programs and events, such as supervised games and activities, non-competitive sports, and arts and crafts, along with educational presentations and life-skills development projects and activities. A new program, "All Camp Color War", has all sites competing independently with weekly challenges to earn points for their cohort(s) across all eight weeks of summer. All of these amenities are included in camp fees.
