Cat Camp is an educational event designed to engage the community in a fun, welcoming environment. Cat Camp started out of a desire to connect people with cats through adoptions, educational opportunities, and by promoting the efforts of small cat related businesses and organizations.
Our first event was held on March 11-12, 2017 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. 2018 details are coming soon.
We recognize that many people will be traveling to New York City for Cat Camp. Thank you so much for your commitment!
If you are having trouble with how to use the NYC subways to get to Cat Camp, please feel free to reach out to us! The Cat Camp staff is comprised of New Yorkers eager to help. Since Cat Camp falls on the weekend, we also recommend that guests refer to the MTA Weekender website for any changes in subway routes prior to the event: http://web.mta.info/weekender.html.

Nearby districts to consider for lodging (by distance):
Chelsea is NYC’s premier contemporary-art district and home of the famed High Line, which is always crawling with tourists and locals alike. The neighborhood is a mix of history, ritz, and glam and is perfect for those looking to stay in a more eclectic region of NYC.
The Flatiron District is a conglomerate of many high-end restaurants (including the Gramercy Tavern and ABC Kitchen) and great home goods stores. Mario Batali’s famous hybrid Italian marketplace, Eataly, is also right on the edge of the gorgeous Madison Square Park. Flatiron has a relatively quiet nightlife compared to other neighborhoods in NYC, but there is certainly no shortage of lounges and bars to connect with friends.
