Patch Guide to Summer Camps for Kids

With the warm weather on the way, now is the time to select a great summer program before they all fill up.

And that means one thing: summer camp.

To help you decide, Sayville-Bayport Patch has compiled this summer camp guide featuring a host of programs in town – and others from nearby towns – to make the job of picking the one that’s right for your kids a much easier experience.
