Patch Picks: Summer Camps

Our weekly guide of things to do and places to go in Commack. This week, we highlight summer camps in the area.

With Daylight Savings Time starting up this weekend, the idea that, maybe, possibly, the cold weather could end is becoming a reality. Before you know it, school will be out, summer will be in full swing and kids will be boarding buses to camp. Here are some possibilities where to send your little one come summertime:

Ivy League Camp has all the summer camp essentials, including basketball and tennis courts, pools, and playgrounds. Programs are available for toddlers through eighth graders.

Suffolk Y JCC: How do you know the Suffolk Y is serious about summer camp? There's a countdown on their homepage, ticking away until camp opens. The Suffolk Y provides activities and events year-round, so they have a pretty good idea of how to keep kids entertained.

Park Shore Day Camp: The Budah family has been giving children unforgettable summers since 1959. Brothers Bob and Chuck run the camp now, which has more sports fields, pools, and activities than you'll see in a single summer.

: West Hills offers a wide range of activities for children, from the usual sports and swimming to the more mentally stimulating arts and crafts.

USDAN Summer Arts Camp: If running and jumping aren't up your child's alley, USDAN might be. The camp offers theater, dance, writing, music, art, and chess programs throughout the summer and aims to broaden kids' horizons through an exploration of the arts.
