Quogue wildlife refuge also does a wonderful nature half day camp. Its only $30 per day or 4 days for $100-. You can't beat it. It books up fast so call Quogue Wildlife refuge at 631-653-4771 if interested to see if any availability is left. My kids think its fantastic.

Note you do need to have a family membership for Quogue Wildlife Refuge, but it is only $35 per year and once you have that you can enroll for the camps during winter break, spring break and summer with your kids. Plus they have lots of other activities and you will get their newsletters.
