The annual Summer Camps list was designed to make choosing youth summer activities easier than ever. With multiple categories describing the general types of camps, the list also provides important information on cost, length of sessions, activities and locations.
Each camp listing includes the information you need to visit a camp's website, to contact camp operators and navigate costs.
Interested in sailing? Rocking out in a band? Creating an animated film? Camping out under the stars? Or just clowning around? This list has it all.
Note: Camps with overnight or residential programs are marked by an asterisk.
