If your kids dream of running away to join the circus, to perform death-defying tricks, indulge them at the Camp at Westchester Circus Arts for aspiring acrobats (ages 6-18). Says owner Hilary Sweeney: “Campers are forced to face their fear of heights while mastering the aerial silks, trapeze, and high-wire program.”  It’s an authentic circus experience, located in an actual circus tent (at its brand-new location) at The Harvey School in Katonah. The best part of all? At the end of this two-week camp, parents can watch their kids as they fearlessly fly across the big top in an end-of-camp performance.

Why should the adrenaline junkies have all the fun? At Mount Tom Day Camp, thrill seekers don’t corner the market on adventure, because in addition to the plethora of nail-biting, high-ropes elements, Mount Tom’s Challenge Program focuses heavily on low-ropes options, which are still adventurous and offer added benefits. “The high elements are fun, but the low ropes teach cooperation, team building, and life skills, so we have a considerable number of low elements at the ready,” explains Doug Volan, owner and director of Mount Tom.

Summer Camp at The Cliffs 

If a rigorous week of climbing vertical walls at The Cliffs at Valhalla doesn’t get your camper’s blood pumping, perhaps nothing will! Summer Camp at The Cliffs is for kids (ages 7-15) who like the idea of a week-long program with rock climbing both inside and out. It’s a week of learning safety and technique inside The Cliffs facility, then taking those skills outside, including a trip to the Shawangunk Mountains, a world-class climbing destination in New Paltz.

Kiwi Country Day Camp Adventure Program

It’s hair-raising fun at Kiwi, where adventurous types can enroll in Kiwi’s Adventure Program. Campers who are brave enough to move past the low-rope course have access to Kiwi’s adventure park, made up of a 450-foot dual zipline, designed so campers can race side-by-side; a 40-foot freefall device called Geronimo; and a 25-foot rock-climbing wall. Then they can head to the water for two waterslides, log rolling, and boating fun.
