Lucky for Long Island families, the area is practically a summer camp mecca. You don't need to go very far to find sprawling green campuses, on-site water parks, air-conditioned state-of-the-art athletic facilities, and Ninja Warrior-style obstacle courses. There are fun and enriching programs for kids of all ages, and plenty of flexible schedule options—like partial weeks and extended care—to keep busy parents happy, too.
