NYA Super Summer Day Camp 2019

Super Summer Day Camp

Super Summer Day Camp

Our signature day camp for children ages 5-10* offers something for everyone. All programs are based in NYA’s Middle School building with plenty of time spent outside on NYA’s beautiful campus. Camp is designed to foster friendships, learning, teamwork, and of course, fun! Each week, campers participate in rotations of traditional day camp activities like: sports and games, arts and crafts, water fun with sprinklers, beginning archery, and nature hikes. A weekly special event adds to the fun. Most weeks, campers will be split into groups by age as follows: 5-7 year-old Jr. Panthers and 8-10 year-old Sr. Panthers.** They will come together to participate in large group games. It’s going to be an unforgettable summer – we can’t wait to have you share it with us!

*5 year olds MUST BE entering first grade in the fall to sign up for Super Summer Day Camp sessions.

**If there is a smaller total number of campers registered, these groups may spend a majority of their day together. Contact Mary if you have questions or concerns.

 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.

The daily schedule for each camp remains the same from week to week, but specific activities offered will vary. We have many campers who return for multiple weeks, so activities will rotate to keep campers engaged and interested every day of every week! A sample schedule might look like:
