The Atlantic Community Thrift Shop (ACTS) and the Delaware Marine Trade Association recently made donations to Camp Barnes Inc., a recreational overnight summer camp run by the Delaware State Police for which there is no fee to attend.
ACTS, located at 34634 Atlantic Avenue in Clarksville, donated $20,000 and “has been a huge supporter of Camp Barnes,” according to the DSP.
The donation from the Atlantic Community Thrift Shop will go toward the continued renovations and general operations of the camp. ACTS has supported the camp over the years through financial donations and staff members volunteering at the camp, they noted.
The Delaware Marine Trade Association, located at 100 Marina Lane, Milford, donated life vests to Camp Barnes.
The camp is for boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 13. The camp has served the needs of thousands of children throughout Delaware. For more than 60 years, Camp Barnes has remained basically unchanged. It was originally designed to provide the children who were unable to attend summer camp an opportunity to experience life at a summer youth camp.
