Instruction Sheet Important – Please Read Carefully!
There is a $40 application fee that MUST accompany each application.
Checks should be made out to the Lake Delaware Boys’ Camp.
The application WILL NOT be considered if it is not COMPLETELY filled out. Please furnish us with ALL the information requested before returning it to our office. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the office at the above address or phone number.
Places at camp will be filled shortly after the due date, and applications received after April 15th cannot be guaranteed a place. You should hear by May 15th, whether your son has been admitted for the camp season. If your son has been admitted, you will then receive the necessary information and forms needed to attend LDBC.
Since 1909, there has been no required charge for a boy to attend LDBC. Because each boy who attends LDBC will receive an unique summer camp experience unlike that of other camps, all families are encouraged to make a donation to LDBC that is within their means. Based on our annual expenses, the cost to LDBC for each camper is currently $3,500 per season. Although ALL parents are encouraged to make a donation, donations in any amount are greatly appreciated and no boy will be denied admission because of an inability to pay. As the continued operation of Camp depends on your support, we ask that you be as generous as possible. Donations should be made by June 15th, but should not be sent until you have received a letter informing you that your son has been accepted to attend camp this summer.
You may fill out the form below and pay the application fee online or download this PDF 2017-camp-application to mail in.
