14 Preschool Summer Camps Across Long Island

Finding a fun, enriching preschool summer camp close to home that is a good fit for your little one can be nerve-wracking. You want your child’s first camp experience to be safe and memorable but not overwhelming.

To aid your search, we've found 14 preschool summer camps on Long Island offering a well-rounded summer camp experience filled with outdoor time, games, arts, sports, and socialization. Many of these preschool summer camps offer programs for older children as well, so siblings don't need to feel left out.

Remember: Every camp has its own philosophy and program emphasis, so explore the camp’s websites, call the director and, if possible, attend an open house. Beware that some camps are only offering virtual tours at the moment.

For more camp inspiration for the preschool years and beyond, be sure to explore our Long Island Summer Camp Guide or browse through the listings in our Camp Directory. You can also learn more about local and virtual summer camps with our upcoming Online Camp Fair where you can visit virtual booths and watch live camp demos.

Editor's note: Be sure to click through to each camp's website as guidance for summer 2021 is still being finalized. Individual camp sites provide the most up-to-date information on opening procedures and health and safety protocols.
