Due to staffing, the Parks & Recreation counter in City Hall will be closed daily from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. for lunch. We appreciate your understanding.

Summer is a great time for kids to grow and have new experiences and summer day camp is a perfect setting for it! At Camp Albany, kids will try out fun, hands-on, age-appropriate learning activities with their peers. Camp Albany’s positive, experienced staff team makes every day an exciting adventure!

A week at Camp Albany includes themed activities, group games, STEM projects, outdoor play, cooking, art, and more. There’s really no such thing as a “typical” day, but campers experience a variety of hands-on activities throughout the week, with a focus on fun! When they’re not digging into a game or project, they’ll be outside on the playground running and playing more games.
