A Note About Field Trips...

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all field trips listed this summer are "pending".  We will not be able to hold any off campus field trips unless the CDC and PA Health guidlines for camps change.  Currently they advise to avoid all travel off campus at this time.  If the guidlines do change to allow for field trips, DC Summer Programs would review the health and safety plan of each location to determine if spending time there would be in the best interest of our campers and staff.  In the event that guidlines change and location plans are approved, you would then be given the option to have your child attend the field trip or stay on camp grounds for another day of fun.


Session 1: June 22 – 26

Session 1 of DC Summer Programs has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We look forward to starting with our best foot forward on Monday June 29 for session 2.  We do apologize for any disappointment and inconvenience this may cause, but we do feel it is in the best interest of our camp families and staff members.
