Camp Weeks and Availability

Camps DeBruce, Rushford, and Pack Forest (Colby is Closed)

Registration for the 2022 DEC Summer Camp season opened Sunday, April 10, 2022, at 1 PM. Camp Rushford will open for seven weeks and Camp DeBruce will be open for six weeks this season. Camp Colby will remain closed until 2023 to complete major renovations to the camp. Updates and changes can be found on the Camps main web page and on both DEC's Facebook and Summer Camps' Facebook pages.

The DEC Summer Youth Camps Program must cancel the rest of the season at Pack Forest due to staff illnesses, including COVID, and attrition. We simply do not have the staff to continue to operate the camp safely. We deeply regret having to make this decision and understand the disappointment of the campers, their families, and sponsors.

For information on COVID-19 protocols, visit the Information for Camp Attendees page. Please contact EducationCamps@dec.ny.gov if you have any questions.

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.
