Camp Weeks and Availability

Camps Colby, DeBruce, Rushford, and Pack Forest

At this time, DEC is planning to celebrate the Summer Camps' 75th Anniversary this summer with an in-person program - registration opens March 6, 2022. DEC's primary motivation in planning camp experiences continues to be the health and safety of campers, families, and staff. Please understand that DEC will provide updates on this webpage with new information as the State's response to the COVID-19 pandemic is updated to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

DEC will continue to work with the New York State Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and other experts to evaluate the guidelines in place to protect the health and safety of campers and staff for the 2022 season, and to maintain the DEC Camp Program's exploration and learning opportunities. Please contact DEC Camps staff via email at EducationCamps@dec.ny.gov. Staff will return your email as soon as possible.

Please check below to see the options for different aged campers. Limited means there are 5 or less spots available. This webpage is updated daily during business hours. For the most current camp availability, please check the NYSDEC Summer Camps Facebook page.
