In normal times, we encourage first time campers and their parents to visit us for a walking tour of camp in the spring. We are not yet sure if this will be possible in 2021. In the mean time, please take a look at our brochure, videos, & Virtual Tour.
A NOTE ON COVID-19 SAFETY FOR 2021
We are anticipating that summer 2021 will be another Covid-19 summer. We have lowered camp's registration capacity to ensure that all beds allow everyone in a unit to sleep with their faces more than 6 feet apart in our open air shelters.
We will continue to be in consultation with other Episcopal Camps & Conference Centers (ECCC), the American Camp Association (ACA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the State of Delaware to determine all the layers of protection Camp Arrowhead will implement for the summer. We foresee that some of our program activities will need to be adapted, some new activities will be introduced, and some activities may simply be unavailable.
We will clearly outline our plans and share them broadly in the spring.
Taste of Camp is for campers entering Grades 2-3
Day Camp is for campers entering Grades 2-5
Homestead is for campers entering Grades 3-6
Pioneer is for campers entering grades 7-9
Pathfinder is for campers entering Grades 10-11
The Arrowhead experience enriches young people’s relationships with one another, nature and God. Campers are encouraged to embrace a sense of adventure and cultivate spiritual awareness as they take healthy risks, share responsibilities and engage in outdoor life with one another.
Camp Arrowhead is open to all children, regardless of religion, race or origin, who wish to have a fun filled experience in the loving environment of God's beauty. However, it is not possible for us to offer one-on-one care.
Health & Safety
Camp has an infirmary and a Camp Nurse on staff. Counselors are trained in First Aid, emergency procedures, safety, accident prevention and human awareness skills. Parents or guardians provide a current health history of their camper. If you'd like more information - please see our Health & Wellness Page.
Camping With a Difference
Camp Arrowhead is decentralized. That's a fancy camp industry word that really means there are two main things that make us different than other camps.
1. Family Groups. Our campers are assigned to a unit with 2 Counseling Staff (whose only job is be with and lead them). Children in the same unit are within one grade of each other. And the group lives together, eats their meals together and travels to all their activities together. We believe that this model helps create real community. (The only time a camper might not be with their unit is at Free Time. For roughly one hour after dinner each day campers decide for themselves what they'd like to do most.)
2. We are Liberal Arts-esque. Every camper gets the opportunity to try activities in every area of camp.
Delicious, well balanced, and kid-friendly meals are prepared by our excellent cook and kitchen staff. Meals are served family style in our dining hall. All groups will have the opportunity to plan and cook out a meal in their camp sites.
As the foundation of our outstanding program, the staff undergoes screening along with a thorough training program that includes camping skills, first-aid, counseling, Christian education and human awareness. Interest in working with children, dedication to the camp's philosophy and programs, and a mature sense of safety are key factors in the staff selection process. Counselors are college age and many staff are former campers who have grown up in the program. International staff members, hired through Camp America, enrich your campers' experience by sharing other cultural perspectives. Arrowhead offers high school and college aged young people the opportunity to work with campers in a Christian setting. Staff members come from all walks of life making lifelong friends as they share experiences and work in this unique environment. Camp will gladly work with college programs for credit. Administrative, service, and supervisor positions are available as well. Arrowhead is an equal opportunity employer.
