CORONA — Flag Day, bug juice and canoe rides — if your kids are dreaming of ways to cure the winter blues, you'll be able to check out some options at a summer camp fair this weekend.

More than 40 camps will be at Camp Blast at the New York Hall of Science on Sunday, Feb. 23 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Organizations such as the 82nd St. Academics, Beth Sholom Day Camp, Summer Institute for the Gifted and the Wildlife Conservation Society — with camp offerings for toddlers and pre-teens — will be present to share information and ask questions.
