New Castle County welcomes your children to our camps this summer! Our summer camps offer safe and inviting environments led by a highly qualified and caring staff that ensure your child has a great experience.

With 8 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, daily outdoor time, non-competitive sports, arts and crafts, along with educational presentations and life skills development. Each week, full-day recreation campers travel to different field trip sites and take trips to the pool. All amenities are included in the camp fees.

Our commitment to your children is to encourage their individual growth and learning through fun recreational experiences. We are committed to ensuring that all youth have an enjoyable, safe, and successful recreational experience. Your children are encouraged to explore their creativity, supported in developing new skills, making new friends, and having fun! We look forward to serving you and your children to make this an adventure to remember!
