Though spring has just sprung, it's not too soon to finalize plans for summer camp. If you're looking for a perfect summer camp experience for your first-timer, we've found a dozen preschool summer camps in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. Most of these programs cater to preschoolers through teens but offer special perks for little ones, like dedicated play spaces, pools, and pint-sized sports equipment. All offer an enriching introduction to summer camp, and most grow with your child for summers to come.

You can find more options from summer art camps to summer camps offering transportation, and budget-friendly summer camp programs in our Summer Camp Guide, or search by age and interest in our Summer Camp Directory. We've even got a list of virtual summer camps. 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.

But, no matter what sort of camp you're searching for, time is of the essence. Outdoor camps are in high demand, and small-group sizes mean spots are limited. Book soon to avoid missing out on this annual rite of passage.

Editor's note: Summer camp information for the 2021 season is changing daily. All of the camps listed plan to offer in-person camps this summer, but please click the links to the individual camps below to see specific details about their programs this year. Some photos in this post were taken before the pandemic.
