Delaware Art Museum 1.png
2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington, Delaware 19806, United States

It might seem that an institution like a museum is carved in stone, but since its founding in 1912, the Delaware Art Museum has actually changed a great deal. Our Centennial Timeline, installed in the Museum’s Orientation Hallway, is a look at how things were and how they have changed, both here at the Museum and in the community that we serve. To put the Museum’s historical achievements in context, the Timeline mirrors notable Museum milestones with important local and world events.

A century ago, the Museum started life with an original purchase of approximately 100 Howard Pyle paintings. That collection has grown to include 12,000 works of art by great American masters such as Winslow Homer, artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and well-known American illustrators. The Museum’s name and physical space have also changed considerably. Originally called the Wilmington Society of the Fine Arts, and then the Delaware Art Center, the Museum officially became the Delaware Art Museum in the early 1970s. And although we spent decades traveling around—with no permanent gallery space—the Museum now encompasses 80,000 square feet of exhibition and administrative space, four studio art classrooms, and a sprawling 9-acre sculpture park—the first of its kind in the region.

From its earliest days, the Wildlife Conservation Society has been a leader in animal wellbeing. The flagship Bronx Zoo established its first veterinary department in 1901. At the time, the department consisted only of a pathologist and a veterinarian. Today, the Wildlife Health Sciences division includes departments of clinical care, pathology, nutrition, and field veterinary programs. The Wildlife Health Center, located on Bronx Zoo grounds, serves more than 15,000 animals from the four WCS zoos in New York. The state-of-the-art Aquatic Animal Health Center at the New York Aquarium opened in 2008 to meet the unique challenges of caring for its collection of marine animals. The high-tech hospital includes a laboratory and an operating room, several pools for patients with flippers, X-ray machines, and a kitchen for preparing meals for residents of all sizes, from a tiny seahorse to a 3,000-pound walrus.

Zoo Camp Tips and Policies

What’s different about Zoo Camp this year?

We’ve made a couple changes to camp this summer to enhance the experience for everyone. This year, camp will separate campers into age appropriate groups to provide stronger curriculum, have a smaller camper to counselor ratio, include a special camp t-shirt, provide a special Wildlife Theater performance (Kinderzoo and older).

What will my child do all day at Zoo Camp?

Zoo Camp is full of fun! Your child will be introduced to the world of animals and science. Zoo Camp has age- themed programs including games, up-close animal encounters, hands-on science, along with crafts and songs. Since your camper doesn’t tell you everything, we’ll also distribute a parent letter on the first day that will go over the focus of each day, what exhibits we visit, what animals we met and some questions to test your camper’s knowledge.

Who is this camp for?

Zoo Camp is perfect for youth who have an interest, love or passion for animals and science. We offer a variety of activities that connect campers to nature, but it’s great when our participants come to us with an initial interest in animals since we are Zoo Camp!

How much interaction do campers have with animals?

Each day the campers will experience a close encounter with an animal from our education animal collection. Other special activities might include seeing an exhibit animal up-close for feeding, enrichment or training sessions. They will not be allowed to hold any animals but will have the chance to touch some of our creatures. The Teen Internship programs include a variety of behind the scenes components and opportunities to connect with animal keepers.

What is the counselor to camper ratio?

The counselor to camper ratio varies with age and registration. Our average group size is around seven campers to one counselor. For Kinderzoo, we have a ratio of 6 campers to 1 counselor, while Zoo Explorer has a ratio of 8 campers to 1 counselor. Each group also has volunteers who help supervise campers.

Is there a nap time?

We offer yoga and nap time for the Kinderzoo campers only. For all camps, we try to incorporate quieter activities where campers have some down time. Do you provide snack? We provide snack daily. We try our best to supply treats with few allergic interactions. Please make sure that all allergies are listed on the medical form and if your child does have food allergies, please pack a snack just in case. Since we don’t provide snack until mid-morning, please make sure that your camper eats a healthy breakfast before coming to camp.

Should I pack a lunch for my camper?

Yes, please. Please send your camper to Zoo Camp each day with a NUT-FREE lunch. Please do not send any snacks or foods containing peanuts or tree nuts. Many children have allergies to different types of nuts. We hope to ease parents’ concerns about allergic reactions. Sharing of lunch items is not permitted except amongst siblings.

What should my child wear to camp?

Dress appropriately for the weather. We will go outside rain or shine, so rain gear is needed sometimes. For younger campers, please make sure their clothing is easy for them to remove while using the restroom (zoo staff cannot assist campers in the restroom). On the first day of camp, your child will be given a special Zoo Camp t-shirt. We require your child to wear this shirt every day of camp. It increases visibility while touring the zoo. Extra shirts can be purchased for $15 while you register or on the first and second days of camp. Closed-toed shoes are required for your child’s safety.

Will you be outside all day?

Many of our activities include outside time. Please make sure your camper is wearing sunscreen. Counselors are not allowed to apply sunscreen, so please make sure you put it on your camper each morning. It is also a good idea to send your camper with a full, reusable water bottle. We make routine stops at the water fountains, but it does get hot during the summer and your child will be running around outside for most of the day.

Can I stay with my child during the day? May I eat lunch with my child?

For the safety of campers, we do not allow adults who are not camp staff to spend time with the camp group. This includes parents.

What if my child has special needs?

If you child has special needs (dietary, allergy, behavioral, physical, etc.) please notify us in advance by calling 718-220-5132. We want your child to have the best camp experience possible and can only do this if we know the unique needs of your child!

[showhide type="typeC" more_text="First Day of Camp Sign In/Out Procedures" less_text="Hide Information" hidden="yes"]

First Day of Camp and Sign-In/Sign-out Procedures

Where should I go the first day of camp?

We will provide you with plenty of information in your Zoo Camp Parent Letter, which will describe the location of the camp and what to expect for the first morning. Please note that parents or guardians are REQUIRED to attend a 15 minute orientation from 10:00-10:15am. We will give you an overview of the program, discuss safety rules, camp policies and answer questions.

Where can I park?

Parking is available in the Southern Blvd Lot. Please make sure to display your parking pass when you drop your camper off.

What time can I enter the zoo?

On the first day of camp, the Southern Blvd Lot entrance will open at 9:30am so parents and campers can get in to finalize paperwork and get their t-shirt and name badge. On Tuesday through Friday, the entrance will open at 9:45am. We start camp promptly at 10am each day, so make sure to get here on time. If you’re running late, please let us know by calling 718-220-5132. YOU MUST WALK YOUR CAMPER TO THEIR CAMP LOCATION EACH DAY. Except for Teen Interns, campers are not allowed to be in the zoo by themselves.

What happens if I need to pick up my camper early?

If you would like to pick up your camper at a time other than the designated pick-up time, please notify your camper’s counselor. Upon your arrival at the zoo, notify the front gate and they will radio to your camper’s group so you can meet up with them.

What happens if I’m late picking up my camper?

Campers who are picked up more than 15 minutes past the pick-up time will be charged $45. We appreciate your attention to this matter.

Who can sign out my camper?

People signing out campers must be listed on the Camper Release Form and have to be 18 and over. When completing the Camper Release Form, parents/guardians need to list themselves as well. All adults signing out a camper should bring a photo ID with them to verify their identity. Teen Interns are allowed to sign themselves out with adult permission.

Kids School Vacation Camps and Workshops!

FEBRUARY SCHOOL VACATION KIDS CAMP

FEBRUARY 17-21

9 am – 3 pm

Bay Street Theatre

$385 for the weeklong camp per child

The camps will be led by Bethany Dellapolla, and include instruction in acting, singing, dance, performance & more. In addition, there are fun, creative theater games and improvs to help develop skills and to encourage students to stretch their abilities as young actors. Students will learn standard songs and choreography, and are also encouraged to create their own original work. The camp ends in a performance on Friday, at the theater for friends and family.

“The sheer fun of improv comedy and acting exercises, or learning a song or developing a short theater piece, engages children in problem solving, creative thinking, and collaboration,” says Dellapolla. “Through simple character study, they walk in someone else’s shoes and gain insight into themselves and others.”

Camp size is limited and always sells out. For payment and more information, please call Lorien at 631-725-0818 ext. 129. For more information about the camps or other programming at Bay Street Theatre, log on to http://www.baystreet.org.

We currently have students registered who live in Bethesda, Silver Spring, Olney, Gaithersburg, and DC. Carpools help campers (and parents!) make new friends, ease transportation time, and help us all go GREEN!

Filmmaking Summer Camps

Film_camps


Summer Camp 2014 registration is now open!

Imagination Stage offers its filmmaking program in a unique and comprehensive camp environment. Young filmmakers are placed in small teams to complete short narrative films from concept to final cut. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals and process of filmmaking: story analysis, pre-production techniques, composition, cinematography, editing, and sound. Professional films are screened and analyzed while campers begin to create their own aesthetic.

Campers who have participated in previous film camps and/or classes are paired with filmmakers of comparable experience or may choose to participate in the Advanced Filmmaking Academy to reach the next level of their education in the craft of filmmaking. Projects are screened in an end of camp premiere in the Imagination Stage’s Christopher and Dana Reeve Studio Theatre. View sample videos from our Filmmaking Students

Filmmaking – Grades 5-8 Filmmaking – Grades 9-12
