Special Olympics Delaware is hosting its annual summer camps on August 5-7 and 13-15 at Camp Barnes in Frankford. More than 60 athletes and dozens of counselors are attending each session as the organization celebrates its 22nd summer of offering the traditional camp experience.

Summer camp is one of the most anticipated events of the year for Special Olympics athletes of various ages and abilities. Campers participate in several traditional camp activities while enjoying the opportunity to reacquaint with and meet new friends during the three-day, two-night camp experience.

‚ÄúOur¬†summer camp is¬†an opportunity for¬†our campers and counselors¬†to¬†interact with each other in an inclusive setting¬†while enjoying¬†a traditional camp experience,‚Ä̬†said¬†Nate Threatts,¬†SODE staff member and camp director.¬†‚ÄúFor many of our campers it‚Äôs the highlight of their summer as they get to experience all the fun that a summer camp can provide and create memories that they talk about all year long until they return again.‚ÄĚ
