13 Top NYC Summer Day Camps for 2020

New York City has the best camps, whether you're looking to stave off summer brain drain with an awesome tech program; introduce your curious kiddo to dancing, visual arts, or cooking; or give your city kid a taste of a traditional country day camp with all the bells and whistles (and ropes course and swimming lessons, of course). We've rounded up some amazing arts camps, STEM camps, traditional suburban camps, and more from our wonderful summer camp partners.

The opportunities are seemingly unlimited with high tech camps where kids can learn all about robotics, Minecraft, or coding. Fantastic arts camps offer animation, filmmaking, acting, and dance. Meanwhile, traditional campsboth in the city and in the countrylet kids sample a full day of fun. With summer camp registration already underway, the time to sign up is now.
