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. 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.
