NYA Soccer Camp 2018

Sports Camps

Sports Camps


Our sports camps are designed to encourage campers to develop the disposition needed for good sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork in an atmosphere of fun! Campers will benefit from the expertise of coaches and players who bring their extensive knowledge and passion for sports to a variety of activities. These camps help campers develop skills and techniques, as well as expose them to game and match situations.

Daily schedules will be organized differently depending on the instructors and the activities offered. Age eligibility ranges from 2-14 years, depending on the sport and level, so be sure to check each session closely. All programs are based on NYA’s beautiful campus and are instructed by staff with experience in the specialty or by one of our partner organizations.

Full Day sessions run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with the options of FREE Before Care from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and FREE After Care from 3:00-5:30 p.m.

Campers should come each day with a lunch, two snacks, comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and a water bottle. Because we are so active each day, please be sure campers dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather, as well as for the sport in which they are participating (see Family Handbook for detailed packing list).

Before & After Care is a well-supervised and loosely structured time outside of the normal camp program time. With a camp session registration, this is offered FREE of charge as a courtesy to our campers and their families. Before Care runs from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and After Care runs from 3:00-5:30 p.m. Before and After Care take place in the Middle School.
