Quick Glance Schedule (vers. 6-6-2023)

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 2-16 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.

With the exception of Ice Hockey Camp, Full Day sessions run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with the option of After Care from 3:00-5:00 p.m. After Care is a well-supervised and loosely structured time outside of the normal camp program time. After Care is an additional $50 per camper per session.  Please sign up for After Care at the same time you register your camper.

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).

If you sign your camper up for more than one week of camp, be sure to take advantage of our 10% multi-session discount!

Don’t miss our EARLY BIRD discount! Register by April 15, 2023 to save $25 per registration.

Please note that a $50 non-refundable deposit per camper, per session is due at the time of registration. This deposit is not refunded in the event of cancellation.
