Camp staff have created a handbook that we hope answers many of the questions that parents and campers have about DEC summer camp. Please review the handbook and contact us if you have any additional questions. After registering your camper for this season you will receive a hard copy of the handbook with your camper packet. Please hold onto it and refer to as the summer approaches.
