Most Engaging Summer Experiences for Kids 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.
Partner this with the Summer Membership at the Siegel JCC and you have a place the whole family will want to spend their summer.
The Boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach
Who can remember the first time you downed a full cup of Thrasher’s fries while swatting away the seagulls, or finding your favorite Kohr’s Brothers combo flavor, or the time you were finally brave enough to get into the Gravitron at Fun Land? When you are looking for fun in the sun, what more can you ask for than a relaxing weekend on the beach?
Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge
Stretching eight miles along Delaware Bay and covering 16,251 acres, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge provides habitat for wildlife. The upland area includes forests, freshwater impoundments, brushy and timbered swamps, and fields of herbaceous plants. With Environmental Educaiton and Interpretation programs, it is an amazing spot in Delaware for when you want your children to get the most out of nature.
The Riverfront- Kalmar Nyckle and Constitution Yards
What a bit more historic flavor? With tours and active sail times, for children boarding the Kalmar Nyckle is like being on their own pirate adventure! There really is nothing like standing on the deck with the wind in the sails to really transport them back in time. And with time left in the day, why not hit up the walk for some mini-golf, then head Constitution Yards: it’s an open air restaurant with plenty of activities for kids to enjoy, from pinball and horse shoes to giant jenga and badminton.
Dover International Speedway
Sunday ticket prices for kids drop to $10, and there is access to a ton of activities in the Monster Mile Youth Nation area where they can participate in games and interactive events. Driving simulators, live music, and of course, the race itself, make a visit to the track a day to remember.
