SoDel Cares, the philanthropic arm of the hospitality group SoDel Concepts, donated $4,000 to Camp Barnes, a summer camp run by the Delaware State Police for children ages 10 to 13. For six weeks, from early June until August, about 60 children per week attend the camp at no charge to their families.

“I love that the Delaware State Police work so hard to help and support the youth in our area,” said Scott Kammerer, president and CEO of SoDel Concepts. “Camp Barnes helps deserving kids experience nature and enjoy activities that might otherwise have been unavailable to them due to the cost.”

Located on Millers Creek, a tributary of Little Assawoman Bay in Ocean View, the camp’s activities include swimming, kayaking, archery, crabbing and fishing, sports, and arts and crafts.
