Summer Camp

The NYC Parks Experience Summer Day Camp program is an exciting chance for children ages six to 13 to have a fun-filled summer! Campers engage in sports, fitness, and outdoor adventures while taking part in many of New York City’s rich cultural and educational opportunities.

Activities include canoeing and fishing with the Urban Park Rangers, tennis and golf hosted by City Parks Foundation, Learn to Swim classes with Aquatics instructors, and fun STEAM programs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics). Specific activities, dates, and trip destinations will depend upon the camp location.

Our summer camp program is extremely popular, and in order to make sure that we can accommodate children as fairly as possible, registration is conducted through a lottery.
