Top Ten Best Summer Camps to Work for in Delaware
Camp JCC Delaware
Action. Creation. Exploration. These are the three pillars of activities at camp and the basis on which Camp JCC Delaware makes sure that every camper has a varied schedule that simultaneously meets their desires and interests and challenged them and pushes their boundaries to promote growth. By focusing on engaging camp activities and empowering the campers through choice programming, campers grow and develop over the course of the summer. Using camper family input to develop the camp schedule from the ground-up, Camp JCC Delaware is able to create a program that best benefits every camper and meets their needs.

Delaware Dance Company is excited to offer a new program in Musical Theatre. Intended to acquaint participants to the required versatility and expressiveness needed for the professional stage, both novice and experienced dancers will learn from former and current Broadway professionals. Younger dancers will be given the opportunity to see, learn from, and ask questions of experienced professionals, while still getting the opportunity to shape and “star” in their own mini-musical. Experienced dancers will be offered the same rigorous training as other DDC Intensive Workshops, but with additional classes and choreography taught by visiting professionals. All participants will learn about auditions and resumes, and will receive instruction in acting and singing as well as daily classes in dance.
