Williamsburg/Greenpoint Summer Camps.... Número Cuatro

March 13, 2015

This year for summer camps we are going to do things a bit differently and have a running summer camp post. Many camps are starting early with the registration process and it is a bit mind boggling that if you miss the time period for certain camp registration then your back to the drawing board of looking for the best camp for your child (children). We’ll be updating this post frequently and adding summer camps as we are given up to date camp information. If you are a camp please feel free to email us info on the camp you re offering at motherburg@gmail.com.
