Summer Camps in Murray Hill & UES

Last week, we featured summer camps in Downtown Manhattan, so now let’s head uptown and East.  Murray Hill  is a neighborhood in midtown Manhattan on the East side.  Full of families and boasting tons of restaurants and parks and tree-lined streets, this neighborhood is a great place to spend the day.  Go farther up the 6 train and you hit the Upper East Side, which is well-known for its kid-friendly activities.
