Our counselor-to-camper ratio is as follows: for every 8–10 campers, there will be one staff member and one junior counselor-in-training.

Reference checks and a criminal background check are a requirement for all camp staff.

We are here to encourage campers to make friends and to provide them with a fun, safe, and unforgettable camp experience.


 It’s so good to be a part of something bigger. We love DLC’s traditions—whether it’s a good laugh together during a camp dance, a fun chat during lunch time, or a detective investigation during brain games. These moments bring everyone together and help establish a sense of unity and family. Our values are deeply rooted in the entire camp experience, and they make this place unique. It’s very rewarding to see children make discoveries every day. Have you ever gotten a chance to see yourself make a real difference? We do daily!”

– Yours, DLC team
