Summer Camps That Offer Extended Hours for Campers on Long Island

Find a Nassau or Suffolk county summer camp that has before- and after-camp care.


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 on Long Island offer before- and after-camp hours for just this reason.
