We missed having camp last summer, but the safety of our entire camp community is always our primary focus. With that said, I am happy to inform you that 2021 camp applications are now available online. This has been a difficult year for all of us.

What's Happening at PDC?
For 2020, we renovated our Kitchen, where cooking classes are held, with new sinks, mat flooring, lighting, cookware, a dishwasher, fresh paint and more. More changes are planned, so stay tuned!
The END ZONE is now...The BACKYARD GAMES ARENA! We had additions to Backyard Games in 2019, including a life-sized Operation Patient and a 42" x 38" Labyrinth Maze. Our Miniature Golf Course, "LeBlanc Links", was entirely redone for the 2019 Camp Season, with all new obstacles, bridges and more. 3 Disc Golf and Foot Golf holes were also installed at Schweiger Field.
We also had many other exciting changes in recent camp seasons! Click HERE for more details. We have received tremendous positive feedback for our improved our Food Service Program, Computers, Science, Nature, Swimming and Archery. We also added activities like Auditorium Amusements, Flight and Motion, House of Bounce, Camp Adventures for K's, I Spy Private Eye (for 1st Graders) and Engineering 101 (for 2nd graders).
