ALBANY — The weather’s getting warmer, the days are getting longer and school will be out soon for the summer break.
After months of school activities keeping them busy, youngsters and youth — and their parents — may be looking for ways to avoid boredom and too much time devoted to playing video games.
One option is the summer camp. For the past few weeks, The Albany Herald has asked organizations that conduct summer camps to send in their information so families can see what’s going on, find any that interest them and plan for the summer.
The camps cover a wide range of interests and structure, with some overnight and others day camps.
