There are many different camps to attend in and around Sag Harbor and most of them are really fun. We’re not just saying that because we live here — it’s true. Most camps have activities including sports, arts and crafts, swimming and even horseback riding. Here are a few of the popular ones:

Young Artists and Writers Project. YAWP at Stony Brook Southampton is for people who like to develop their creative expression and critical thinking. Along with experienced writers, kids ages 13-18 write and illustrate stories in fiction, essay, poetry, playwriting and screenwriting. Info:

Global Boarding Water Sports is in Sag Harbor, Noyac and Southampton. If you are a confident swimmer, you will love this camp. You can take lessons to learn how to wakeboard, wakesurf, water ski, surf, stand-up paddle and more! Info:

Sportime East Hampton Sports Camp. Sportime has many Long Island locations; the closest to us is in Amagansett. Kids ages 3 to 13 have many fun activities to fill their day including tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, dodgeball and capture-the-flag. Info:
