Memorial Day (Monday, May 30) and the official start of the East End’s busy summer season is literally days away, so now’s the time to take advantage of all the special things that will be nonexistent or difficult to enjoy in the Hamptons once the crowds arrive from points west.
We continue our countdown of 20 things to do before Memorial Day in the Hamptons with:
#4: Find a Summer Camp
The Hamptons is loaded with all sorts of summer camps for your children, but the season is basically here, so it’s time to get cracking and pick one!
Of course it’s vitally important to know your child and his or her interests if you want to help choose the right camp. Is he or she an athlete? A science nerd (we say this in the fondest way)? An artist? Is he or she into horses and riding? Don’t worry—the Hamptons has camps for every type of kid!
Parents could also consider sending a child to a camp that may be slightly outside their wheelhouse, but one that would provide some new and different experiences that would help him or her grow. Obviously camp should still be fun, so don’t send them somewhere they’ll absolutely hate. That won’t be good for anyone.
Check our online Summer Camp Guide for some excellent options, as well as some articles to help you choose a camp and, once you do, prepare your child for it. A summer of structured, fun and educational activities will help your kids make new friends, enforce positivity and core values, and teach them new skills through their many experiences!
Camps are filling up. Make sure to sign up soon!
