Rain or Shine!

Rainy days are no problem at DCDC. With two large gymnasiums and several large multi-purpose spaces, our camp offers a full progam every day regardless of weather.  

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. 
  • On Fridays we provide a special lunch for all campers, alternating each week between a cookout lunch which includes hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, & drinks or Pizza lunch with drinks.
