It may only be the end of February, but it is time to start thinking about what your kids will be doing this summer. For the first time in two years, you might be thinking you are going to send the kids to camp. If that is your plan, don't wait to pick out a camp and get the kids registered. It is assumed that camps will be in high demand.

Here in the Hudson Valley, we have lots of options for kids who want to spend their summer outdoors learning things. Some programs are a week, some are longer. No matter how long the program, there is a good chance that the camp your child wishes to attend could be limiting participants. So it is important that you get them signed up early.

Hudson Valley Summer Camps

Two popular programs have already announced their registration. If your kids plan to attend one of these programs, be sure you are ready to sign them up. Registration is open already at one and the other opens tomorrow (Feb 23, 2022).
