Still hoping to find a spot for your child to spend their summer days? It’s not too late – many New York City camps are still accepting summer registration. Whether your child might like to try out their voice in a musical theater program, learn to cook healthy meals or sleep in a rustic cabin, here are some summer schedule options:

Performing arts

Four Corners Creative, a company that offers dance, music and acting lessons, hosts multiple one-week Adventures On Stage musical theater camps, where kids learn dance from hip-hop to Broadway, ultimately putting on a production at the end of the week to show off their new skills. They will also get to meet Broadway performers and former Rockettes. The company emphasizes self-esteem and character building alongside the theater theme.

PreK through fifth grade
$475 per session

Fitness

For a camp-like experience without the separation of a full week or day, kids’ yoga studio Yogi Beans on the Upper East Side is also still taking reservations, whether families are in town for the whole summer or just this month. Their Mini-Bean Yoga Retreat offers a two-hour yoga adventure for kids, ages three to nine, including soothing poses, a healthy snack, and arts and crafts.

Three to five years, six to nine years
$40 to drop in or 10 classes for $300

Foodies

For children with an appetite or eye toward the kitchen, Freshmade NYC is expanding their cooking classes this year to a three-day summer camp, for an hour each day. The camps include cooking alongside arts, crafts, yoga and farm visits. The camp starts off at the Battery Urban Farm downtown, where kids can plant and grow their own herbs and vegetables. Later, at the Soho-based Freshmade NYC, campers learn to prepare healthy meals.

Two years to six years
$272 per session

Enrichment

With locations all around the five boroughs, the YMCA offers a slew of day camps and sleepaway camps for young New Yorkers. Day camps include an array of activities like swimming and museum visits to swim camps, or campers can choose specialized arts camps and sports camps. Sleepaway camps promise a bully-free atmosphere and team-building exercises to make children feel welcome in rustic cabins, where they live with a trained counselor. Financial assistance is available to some families. Each branch has a different schedule of activities, so check with your local YMCA.

Costs vary
