Summer Camp

Camp Saradac is a NYSDOH licensed full day summer camp for children ages 5-12. For over 70 years Camp Saradac has offered exciting field trips, creative recreational and educational programs, intriguing arts and crafts, and weekly swimming.  For the 2019 Summer our new location will be at the St. Clement's school due to the fire at City Hall causing employees to relocate to the Rec Center.  However, we are so excited and lucky that our new home is so close to one of the best parks in the City, East Side Rec!  This summer we will be hosting daily trips to the East Side Rec to take advantage of the wide open outdoor spaces, playgrounds, and interactive spray fountain.  In addition, many of last season's favorites and exciting new adventures will be part of our 2019 field trip line-up!  Please note, due to the limited registrations in the past seasons we will not be offering the 13-15 age group.
