Rain or Shine!

If Rain is in the forecast to last the entire day camp may be cancelled due to rain. You will be notified by 6am that day via phone call/text if camp is cancelled.

If there is a passing thunderstorm activities will be moved inside.

If we are able to run swim lessons, swim lessons continue through a light rain, as long as there is no threat of lightening.  In case of bad weather, all of our outdoor activities (sports, archery, etc) are easily moved into the gymnasiums.  Our buildings are also air-conditioned so that campers can get a break from the heat and sun on hot days.

What About Food?

  • DCDC provides a mid-morning snack and an afternoon snack campers bring their own lunches to camp.
  • DCDC is a nut-aware campus. Peanut products are NOT allowed.
