Nestled on the shore of the Delaware River in the rural hamlet of Callicoon, New York, the Delaware Youth Center has been a central part of its surrounding community for over 70 years. And in that time, we’ve had the honor of touching thousands of lives. Whether they learned to swim in our pool, to fly-fish in our creek, had their first dance at our pavilion, or celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary in our hall, chances are that if you ask someone in the community what the Delaware Youth Center has done for them, they’ll have a special story to tell.
We’ve been able to provide all these things and more over the years thanks to the support and generosity of our members. Though we do allow everyone to use the playground and grounds, the Youth Center is not a town park, it is funded and intended for use by our Members, so don’t forget to become a Member soon! Treat yourself to the fun and warm memories that membership provides, and ensure that the Delaware Youth Center continues to touch the community for the next 70 years, and beyond.
Our next Clean Up Day is Saturday, April 25th from 1-4pm. We need lots of help to prepare the Center for the year. Please bring your shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, brooms, gardening tools, & lots of energy. Many hands make light work! Your help at these workdays is greatly appreciated. It keeps your center in tip-top shape, and it’s a lot of fun. Hope to see you there!
