Camp Programs

Camp W.E.S.T., ages 5-12, is filled with the perfect blend of Education, Sports and Fun!   Programming is focused around: Nature, the Arts, Technology, and Sports and Recreation. Activities enable campers to develop and apply problem-solving skills, gain exposure to the arts, build teamwork skills, create friendships, practice using technology, experience the natural world, and so much more. Our team of dedicated and well-trained professionals works year-round to ensure that our camp programs are fresh, creative and exciting.

Camping Activities include:

Creative Expression – Individuals and small groups explore a variety of media. Campers enjoy culinary arts, plaster casting, drawing and painting, dance, drama, photography, videography, creative writing and public speaking.

Non-Competitive Sports – Team sports are played daily and structured so that everyone participates without feeling uncomfortable about their skill level. Popular camp sports include water sports, volleyball, kickball, basketball, and challenge courses.

Field Trips & Special Guests – Field trips are taken weekly to local skating rinks, museums, amusement parks, aquariums, sporting events, and more as social distancing will allow. Throughout the summer, Camp West invites special guests to give talks and hands-on demonstrations for campers. Special guests in the past have included representatives from The Wilmington Children’s Chorus, University of Delaware Nutrition program, Girls Scouts, wild animal rescues, honeybee keepers, police K9, poets, musicians, and magicians to name a few.

Technology – Campers use our full-service College & Career Technology Lab and other equipment to enhance learning experiences and play interactive games.
