It may be cold outside, but it’s never too early to start looking for the perfect summer camp for your child.  New York Family Camp Fairs (the largest in NYC) is coming to Cobble Hill on Sunday Feb. 12th from 12-3pm at the Brooklyn Heights Montessori School, 9 Bergen Street. Learn about day and sleepaway camps and get your questions answered by over 30 camp directors!

Summer camps have always been a rite of passage for children. For generations, summer camps have provided children’s first experience of community beyond their immediate family and neighborhoods. Summer camps give children their first taste of overcoming fears and learning how to swim, sitting around campfires at night and falling in love with the art of storytelling.

Whether your child is attending camp for the first time or can be considered a veteran camper, you want to make sure you are choosing the right camp for your child. Do you want to look at general camps or specialty camps? If you’re focused on day camps, do you want to look in the city or out of the city? And if it’s sleepaway camp time, there are so many wonderful options to explore near and far. Where to start? The New York Family Camp Fairs, presented in partnership with the American Camp Association-NY/NJ, will be in Cobble Hill on Sunday, Feb 12th at 12:00 PM.
