Why a Camp Guide?

Summer camp used to be a simple affair: a little swimming, a few crafts, a brown-bag lunch, and some outdoor playtime. Not anymore. Today, Westchester parents and their kids are looking for more sophisticated—and specialized—day and sleep-away camp options. Luckily, our region has plenty to offer. From music to science, sports, arts, and everything in between (whale watching, anyone?), there’s a specialized camp for nearly every interest. Whether you opt for a day camp here in Westchester or a sleep-away camp in the surrounding area, there are plenty of choices to help your budding Beethoven, future Olympian, or next Steve Jobs hone their skills while they sweat away the summer. Who knows? They might even have some good old-fashioned fun.
