Family and Friends of Camp Atlantic,

Like all of you, we at Camp Atlantic are hoping that COVID-19 is under control early in 2021 and we are planning for a full resumption of our program in 2021. For our operations next summer, we will be following closely the guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the guidelines from the State of Delaware and the care recommendations from health professionals. All of our staff will be vaccinated before the start of camp and we ask that all campers be vaccinated before they arrive at camp.

We will notify campers and their families by May 1, 2021 if we conclude that we are unable to operate our program safely and in accordance with state and federal guidelines next summer. We will make a full refund of all fees that have been paid for any portion of a camp season that is cancelled because of COVID-19 concerns.

During this winer and spring, we will keep you posted on our plans for the summer.

Tom, Megan and Michael

Camp Atlantic
is a private, residential summer camp providing teenagers and adults with mental and physical disabilities a safe and fun vacation at the beach.
The camp, which is located in Bethany Beach, Delaware, offers four two-week sessions.

Camp Atlantic provides a living experience for each camper that is carefully designed around the beach community. The goal of the camp is to improve social confidence and independent living skills by living and socializing with peers under the guidance of experienced and dedicated group leaders. Whether it is a trip to the beach or a concert on the boardwalk, each activity is designed to create opportunities for positive social interaction. Camp Atlantic provides each camper the opportunity to improve his or her social skills, mature positively and develop an enhanced self-concept. Campers will gain a sense of security and learn how to be relaxed, outgoing and successful in a socially acceptable manner.

Campers repeatedly tell us that they love camp. When asked, what makes it fun, very often they say everything but do not talk about specific activities. This, more than anything else, tells us that we are accomplishing our objective because it is the experience of the beach vacation and being with friends that makes the vacation fun. That is how most people explain why they return to the beach year after year.
