A lot of parents rely on day camps to keep their kids busy and supervised during the summer months when school isn’t in session—especially if the family doesn’t have a dedicated babysitter available five days a week or if their child is too old for a child care or day care center. But some camps’ hours begin after parents need to be at work or end before parents can leave the office. Enter summer camps that offer extended hours for campers! Many camps right here in Manhattan offer before- and after-camp hours for just this reason. And we’ve compiled a list of those camps that offer extended hours in Manhattan, including camps located in Chelsea, Upper East Side, Battery Park City, Upper West Side, Downtown Manhattan, Hudson Square, Lower East Side, Nomad, Greenwich Village, Murray Hill, and Kipps Bay.
