For many children the best part of summer is summer camp. Camps can provide the opportunity to learn everything from computer skills to surfing. And, as the saying goes, summer camp is the place where strangers become friends and friendships last forever.
For many divorced or separated parents, planning to send a child to summer camp requires additional consideration in order to coordinate schedules. To that end, many custody orders provide timelines for discussing plans or selecting contact weeks. Under the current Delaware Contact Guidelines, the parent whose choice it is to select contact weeks over the summer must give the other parent written notice of his/her summer week selection between March 1st and April 1st. Although April 1st is rapidly approaching, it is not too late to consider summer camps. One helpful resource is The News Journal, which has published a list of summer camps in Delaware.
