How To Become A Del-Haven Camper
Camp Del-Haven is a non-profit organization that has been providing free camping to children for over 65 years. Any child between the ages of 6 and 12 is welcome to come to camp. Because our organization is sponsored by various individuals and churches who are interested in the work, there is no charge for your child to come to camp.
The camp program is run by a well-trained group of volunteers who have dedicated their time and skills toward providing a wonderful week of camp for your child. The camp is recognized by the state and federal government as a non-profit Christian ministry that is run by a local board of directors.
During a week of camp your child can expect to experience the great outdoors through various activities such as: swimming (Red Cross certified lifeguards on staff to supervise swimming and lake activities), campfires (marshmallows included), and other various outdoor games and sports. Also, we provide activities such as nature study, crafts, singing, Bible Studies, and opportunities for memorizing Scriptures. The children will be staying in cabins that hold up to twelve campers and staff.
We do not limit who can come to the camp, as any child is welcome. If your child has a friend or relative who wants to come to camp, you can fill out an additional application for them. Spaces will be filled on a “first come, first serve” basis. When your application is received you will receive a confirmation letter with more specific information. Our camp sessions do fill up quickly, so you should submit your application as soon as possible.
We are able to supply transportation by means of a central pick-up location in Kansas City, and will provide pick-up and drop-off information if needed. The camp sessions go from Monday through Thursday. Please check for session availability before submitting your application.
