The City of Syracuse Department of Parks, Recreation and Youth Programs will cancel the 2020 Summer Day Camp Program schedule due to financial impacts and limited available program partners as a result of COVID-19.

The Parks department traditionally offers a series of off-site day camps covering a wide range of themes at off-site locations that specialize in camp facilitation for a particular program area. Summer camps typically begin the last week of June and run for seven one-week sessions during the summer.

Although several camp partners indicated they are unable to participate in the program, two partners have worked to adjust camp plans for their own programming. Families may be able to register directly. For more information visit the Everson Museum at, and The Red House at

Drop-in programs for youth, adults and seniors at community and senior centers are also canceled.

To engage and educate kids and families through the summer months, the Parks department will be developing virtual programming and “ to go” mobile recreation. Visit for information related to details to be published once finalized.
