Top In-Person Summer Day Camps for NYC Kids in 2021

New York City has the best summer camps, whether you're looking for a day, week, or a whole summer of fun. Camp options 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. Kids can improve their skills and have fun at a camp dedicated to almost any sport, or offer traditional camps—both in the city and in the country—offer lots of active, outdoor fun, plus lots of bells and whistles (and ropes course and swimming lessons). We've rounded up some amazing arts camps, STEM camps, sports camps, traditional suburban camps, and more from our wonderful summer camp partners.

With summer camp registration already underway, the time to sign up is now. For even more ideas, check out our New York City Camp Guide, or browse our Summer Camp Directory by location, type, and age.
