Our COVID Promise

The goal of all DelNature camps is to ensure all our campers have a wonderful, safe outdoor experience.

Our highest priority is protecting the health and safety of our campers and staff.

DelNature will follow all State of Delaware Summer Camp COVID requirements. We have reduced our camp sizes and will follow social distancing rules. In addition, our campers and camp instructors will remain consistent throughout each camp and we will not be blending groups.

As summer approaches, we will be sharing the 2021 state summer camp guidelines and updating our camp families this spring.
