It's only the second day of spring, but now's the time to plan that summer camping experience. There are many opportunities for kids to enjoy the great outdoors at summer camp, and this is the time to prepare.

According to our sister station, WIBX:

"It’s that time again…Time to register your youngsters and teens for summer camp. For those interested in the outdoors, the Department of Environmental Conservation has four camps to choose from. Colby and Pack Forest in the Adirondacks, DeBruce in the Catskills and Rushford in Western New York.

Ann Harrison, Bureau Chief for Environmental Education, says campers will get to experience a variety of outdoor education and recreation activities. “They get to go fishing, they learn all about forest fields, streams, ponds, so it really is a hands-on fun learning experience,” she said. The first session starts Sunday, July 1st, and the last session runs from August 12th to the 18th.

Applications can be found by going to, or by writing to NYSDEC Camps, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4500. You may also e-mail the camps at, or call 518-402-8014 and ask for Randy Cotch."
