We all know getting out the door in the morning during the school year takes a lot of coordinating, with backpacks, briefcases, and after-school activity gear—and adding a brownbag lunch to the morning chaos is at the bottom of some of our lists. And that chaos doesn’t go away in the summer when we’re trying to get the kids out the door for summer camp, so why not look for a summer day camp that offers lunch options every day for campers? We’ve compiled a list of summer camps in Manhattan that offer lunch options, including camps located in Chelsea, Upper East Side, Battery Park City, Upper West Side, and Downtown Manhattan.
