Southern DE Days of Summer Camp

The Days of Summer Camp was started in 2012 with a small group of about twenty children and has grown into a large summer day program. The goal of the camp is to allow children with Down syndrome the opportunity to have the experiences of summer camp while practicing independence, developing physical and emotional health as well as increasing their confidence levels. We strive to maintain an atmosphere where children can build great peer relationships as well as have a fun experience at camp!

Camp is a fun day camp experience for children with Down syndrome ages 3-13 years and their siblings ages 3-10 years. Children are provided with the traditional camp experience with crafts, games, and many other exciting activities, at no cost to their families. Campers are not required to be potty trained.

A certified nurse and teacher will be on site at all times and young adults aged 16-22 will serve as counselors. Counselors will receive at least 40 hours of documented community service for their time.
