LDBC, a sleep away summer camp, offers your son an amazing summer of fun filled experiences and personal growth that will help him meet life’s challenges. The Camp Directors, Jim and Sue Adams, have spent over twenty-five years running a safe and fun program, which is well known in the American Camping Community. The Gerry family, which founded LDBC in 1909, continues to be actively involved in its operation. LDBC’s program is based on an academy structure where campers have the opportunity to lead and grow from that experience. Spiritual growth, a cornerstone of camp life, takes place in St. Joseph’s Chapel, where our chaplain conducts services in the Episcopal tradition, and at our Outdoor Chapel, a beautiful setting for an informal worship service.
During the five-week season, from early July through mid-August, your son will have a fun, safe experience while strengthening values of leadership, discipline, and good sportsmanship. Upon graduation he joins the larger LDBC community, led by the Lake Delaware Alumni Association, which provides a lifetime of meaningful fellowship. Generations of men have found their time at LDBC to be a cherished part of their lives, inspiring them to return each year to donate time and treasure to improve the Camp.
