“Summer camp?” you say. “I’m still thawing out from last night’s freeze!”
Despite the bleak chill outside, you need to start thinking about summer camp now if you want to find the best summer camp for your kids to be participating in come July and August this year.
Lucky for you, our friends at New York Family magazine produce the largest “camp fair” series around. New York Family has been doing these showcases for year to help families with children ages 3 to teen discover the many kinds of day and sleepaway camps available in New York City and throughout the Northeast. These summer camp fairs allow you and your children to meet with counselors and other camp representatives to find the one that will be just right.
Four fairs are coming up, one on each day of the next two weekends, and you would be wise to register now for these New York Family summer camp fairs so you can check them out. Here are the dates:
- Saturday, Jan 23, noon to 3 p.m.: Upper East Side – St Jean Baptiste High School – 167 E. 75th St.
- Sunday, Jan. 24, noon to 3 p.m.: Upper West Side – Congregation Rodeph Sholom – 7 W. 83rd St.

Don’t delay with registration. These camp fairs fill up almost as quickly as the camps themselves. And make sure you mark on your calendar to start looking around for the best summer camp for kids once the mercury starts dipping into the 40s or else it sneak up you again.
