The New York State health department announced that sleepaway summer camps will remain closed due to COVID-19. Parents and kids in the tri-state area erupted in opposition, demanding that Governor Andrew Cuomo come up with an alternative. For now, some parents are shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars to send their children to luxury camps elsewhere. Julie Danziger, a managing partner at the travel agency Embark Beyond, launched a new summer camp in Saratoga, Wyoming. The camp allows parents to choose from 5-star resorts for their kids with activities like go karts and hot-air balloon rides. There are on-site chefs and private jet information available for clients to get their kids to the camp. The heftiest price tag for 10 days at the camp is $150,000
