With the Hudson Valley and Beacon in particular being so rich in the arts, agriculture and a great outdoors scene, options for summer day camps are plentiful. Most camps offer weekly themes with daily projects and activities that reinforce each theme. You can definitely give your child a well-rounded summer that not only keeps them entertained, but very busy. Age groups and times vary among the summer camps. Several camps are offering early drop-off and late pickup for working parents, or for families with more than one child going to different camps. The tough part will be making a decision from among the themes and pulling the trigger on one! The good news is, you don't have to choose just one. Use this Summer Day Camp Guide to mix and match for your family's schedule.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR CAMPS: Business who offer camps can submit them for consideration to be added to this list. When submitting, please include all fields that you see below for all camps. Basically, copy/paste what you see here. We will give you brownie points in our minds, and you'll save yourself time when we don't have to bug you with followup questions.

Let's start with what you'll need to provide with most every camp:
    •    Medical forms
    •    Packed lunch (Have fun with lunch boxes! Play has a bunch of cute metal ones, and Waddle n Swaddle, Echo and Utensil have reusable bags and/or organizational items.)
    •    Water shoes
    •    Bathing suit and towel
    •    Sunscreen
    •    A big bag to pack all of this stuff in
This Guide starts with summer day camps that offer sessions with the most hours per day, followed by niche camps with shorter days.
