General Notes About Camps in the State of New York

New York is the 3rd most populated state in the union at just under twenty million, of which over eight million people live in New York City alone. Thus, there will be a large number of day camps in the NYC metro area - which is chiefly comprised of five urban boroughs: the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. Since New York City is a cultural mecca of sorts, there are also a number of specialty summer programs related to the arts, sports, and education. For instance, there are a number Broadway related drama camps and acting camps, as well as other performing arts programs such as dance camps. In a stark contrast to one of the most developed urban centers in world, much of the area outside of New York City is comprised of much more rural landscape - commonly referred to as upstate New York; offering a more suitable environment for traditional sleepaway camps and other residential summer programs. Other major cities in the state include: Buffalo, Syracuse, and Rochester.

The weather during the summer is normally relatively humid and hot in New York City, while noticeably more cooler in the Adirondacks and the Catskills.

The Catskill Mountains in the southeast and Adirondack Mountains in the northern portion of the state each boast a wealth of forests, lakes, rivers, and other natural features and are home to a number of camps ... especially in the Catskills.
