Affordable Summer Camps for Long Island Kids

For kids, summer is 10 weeks that make the rest of the year worth enduring.

Summer camp can be a significant investment, but some on Long Island summer camps are actually quite affordable; others offer scholarships and financial aid.

Here is our list of the most affordable summer camp programs on Long Island. Find more summer camp resources in our Guide to Summer Camps.
