How much money should I bring?

At camp, there are two places where you’ll end up spending money. The first is the Snack Shop where soda, snacks, juices, and camp shirts are sold. (Shirts tend to be around $10-$15 and food products are about $1.50 on average). The second are offerings that are collected during the evening services. One night the offering will go toward missions, another night to support the Tim Bock Memorial Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships. The other offerings benefit the ministry of the camp.

Can I bring a cell phone?

Campers are not allowed to bring cellular phones for any reasons. We understand the concerns parents might have but in the past, we discovered that cellular phones were distracting and/or disruptive for the camp experience and during worship hours. All cell phones found will be confiscated for the week, regardless of the reasoning behind its usage.

Where is the registration form?

All registration is now done online. Go to delanco.org/register to register and follow the directions.

Where is the Fast Pass?

There is no longer a FastPass for registration.

Where is the packet (health form, pick-up slips, etc.)?

Packets are no longer mailed home. Please check the confirmation email when you register for information about filling out your health card and camper pick-up form. The registration is not complete until these forms are completed.

Questions about health and staff

back to top

What is the staff-to-camper ratio?

Our camp has approximately one staff member for every three campers. Whenever water sports are taking place, lifeguards must be present and a health director is on duty at all times.

Who is the health director?

The health director is always a state-certified doctor, nurse, paramedic, or EMT. There is a first aid room at the camp which has a regularly-stocked supply of necessary medical items. In the event that a serious injury occurs, you will be contacted as soon as possible.

My child has a special dietary need. What do I do?

If your child has an allergy or special diet, our capable kitchen staff can accommodate dietary concerns within their limitations. If you are concerned about this, please contact the camp and ask for the head cook at least two weeks prior as it may require some provision of special food items on your part.

My child has a special medical need. What do I do?

If your child has any special medical needs, please talk to our health director who will be present at the sign-in desk at registration.

How can I be a camp counselor?

Counselors and other volunteer staff is chosen by the deans of each camp. For more information on volunteering visit delanco.org/volunteer. Please note: staff members must be at least 16 years of age.

Can I visit my camper?

Visitors are allowed to visit each evening during the evening service, which starts at 7:30 p.m. until before the evening activity begins. Note that no visitors and/or parents are allowed to stay after the evening service for any reason except on nights designated by the weekly dean.

Can I call my camper?

Campers may only receive phone calls in the case of an emergency. These calls must go through the dean of the camp. If you have an emergency, phone 609-859-2262. (Remember cell phones are not allowed at camp)

Can I send mail to my camper?

Yes. Mail is encouraged.

Questions about signing in or signing out

back to top

What should I bring to camp to sign in?

Once you register for camp online you will receive a confirmation email with directions for filling out your health card and camper pick-up form. Your registration is not considered complete until these items are completed.

How do I get to camp? Where’s the sign in?

We’re at 191 Powell Place Road, Tabernacle, NJ, and the registration table will be at the Tabernacle. You may check out our Directions page and then follow the Camp Map to go to the Tabernacle.

When should I arrive?

Registration begins at 6 p.m.

When do I arrive to pick my child up?

Please make sure your child can be picked up at 11 a.m. on the last day of camp by his or her parents or legal guardians. Also, please remember to bring Photo Identification along with you. Pickup is at the Tabernacle at camp. Click here for Directions and to view the camp map

I can’t pick my child up on time the last day. What should I do?

You can (and should) arrange for someone else to pick your child up instead. Being late seriously hinders the camp’s ability to transition smoothly for the next week of campers. To do so, you must provide a letter to the camp from the parent or legal guardian stating: the child’s name, the name and address of the person picking the child up, the date and time of pick-up, and a telephone number where the guardian can be contacted during the pick-up time. This should be accompanied by the guardian’s signature. The person making the pick-up should have photo identification at the time of pick-up.
