SUMMER CAMPS

Kids and teens are invited to join us this summer for eight weeks of creativity and fun! The Delaplaine offers two sessions each week, morning (10 am–12 pm) and afternoon (1–3 pm) with classes for students ages 6–10 and 10–14.

A Safe, Healthy Art Experience

The Delaplaine’s summer camp program is Maryland Department of Health certified. The well-being of the students is our first priority, and we follow COVID-19 prevention health and safety protocols recommended by local, state, and federal agencies, including:

  • Campers and staff who are exposed to COVID-19, or who develop suspected or laboratory confirmed COVID-19, may not attend camp until cleared by a healthcare provider, per state Department of Health orders.
  • Camp families are asked to fill out an online health screening form for each camper before camp each day. The link to the form is included with confirmation and reminder emails.
  • Families are asked to drop off and pick up inside the Delaplaine. When you enter, a staff person will confirm that you have filled out the daily camper health screening form and direct you to the appropriate drop off area. Pick up will take place at the same area, unless otherwise advised. Everyone picking up will be required to show ID.
  • Campers are required to wear face coverings if they can be worn safely and consistently, and we ask that adults and siblings over age 2 accompanying campers also wear face coverings. We understand that some children may not be able to wear face coverings for a variety of reasons and you are welcome to note this on your health form, where appropriate. All camp staff and volunteers will also wear face coverings.
  • Per current CDC and Maryland Department of Health guidelines for camps, campers may be as close as 3-feet from other campers in their camp class, and they will be 6-feet away from everyone else.

Please Note: COVID policies may change at any time, so please review these again shortly before camp. Current information last updated 3/10/2022.
