Are lunches being provided this Summer?
We will provide lunch for your child; however, we cannot accommodate allergies or dietary restrictions.  Your child is welcome to bring their lunch in a lunchbox with freezer packs if they choose.

Are field trips planned for this Summer?
We are currently working to provide both in-house and off-site field trips.  This is subject to change.  We will follow guidelines set forth by the State of Delaware and Y-USA to determine if it is safe and appropriate to take our campers off-campus. 

What does my child need to bring DAILY?
All children must have:

  • Water Bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Swim attire (bathing suit, water shoes/flip flops, towel, goggles-optional)
  • Packed Lunch
  • Weather appropriate attire

Please do not bring the following items to summer camp:

  • ­­Electronics (Ipad, cell phone, tablets)
  • Toys
  • Jewelry or other valuable possessions
  • Pets
  • Alcohol or drugs of any kind (will result in IMMEDIATE dismissal from camp)
  • Anything else perceived as inappropriate

**Materials not permitted will be confiscated and held in the camp office until the end of the week or until arrangements have been made for pick-up.  Multiple offenses are subject to a camper’s dismissal from camp for the remainder of the summer season.

How do I contact the Camp Director or someone from the administration?

  • The Camp Director can be reached, during camp hours, at 302-392-2413 .
  • Our Senior Child Development Director can be reached at 302-257-5856 or via email (outside of camp hours) at eneurohr@ymcade.org

How will you communicate important camp information with parents?
Most camp communication is done through the Procare app. Parents must download the app to get real-time messages to the campground regarding their child. Parents will be contacted via phone in the case of serious or emergency situations regarding your child.

How late can I register my child for camp?
Camp enrollment for the upcoming week closes on Wednesdays at noon, THE WEEK PRIOR. For example, for the camp week of June 28th, enrollment closes on June 24th at noon.  No exceptions for enrollment after that time will be made without the Camp Director’s approval. As a reminder, your child is not fully enrolled until all required documents are received by the camp.
