Sleepaway camp is an exciting prospect for kids and parents alike: Besides offering time spent communing with nature, overnight camps provide peer socialization, time away from home, and hours away from a screen.

We've scoured the region to round up 20 summer sleepaway camps throughout the Northeast. These camps offer everything from classic summer camp fun to specialty programs, including performing arts, circus arts, and even a spy program. Summer may seem a long way off, but now is the time to start planning your child's next sleepaway camp adventure. 

Looking for more summer camp options? Be sure to bookmark our Summer Camp Guide and peruse our full Camp Directory for more programs to fit any budget and interest. You can also learn more about local and virtual summer camps with our upcoming Online Camp Fair.

Editor's note: Be sure to click through to each camp's website, as individual camp sites provide the most up-to-date information on opening procedures, and health and safety protocols. Some photos in this post were taken before the pandemic.
