Frankford- On Friday, March 23, 2018, the Atlantic Community Thrift Shop (A.C.T.S.) donated $50,000 to Camp Barnes Inc. The Atlantic Community Thrift Shop is located at 34634 Atlantic Avenue in Ocean View, DE 19970, and has been a huge supporter of Camp Barnes.
Camp Barnes, a non-profit organization, is a recreational overnight summer camp run by the Delaware State Police in which there is no fee to attend. The camp is for boys and girls between the ages of 10-13. The Camp has served the needs of thousands of children throughout Delaware. For over 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.
The donation from the Atlantic Community Thrift Shop will go towards the continued renovations and general operations of the camp. A.C.T.S. has supported the camp over the years through financial donations, and staff members volunteering at the camp.
