WHERE PLAY GROWS
The wide range of activities and experiences offered at NYA will empower your child to get out of their comfort zone and learn something new. Our special staff and incredible facilities means everyone gets the
chance to exercise their brains and their bodies.
NOW OFFERING AFTER CARE!!
Responding to the needs of our camper’s parents, NYA is now offering After Care from 4pm – 6pm, following each camp day.
The Fee for After Care is $30 per week (Session 3, 7/5/22 – 7/8/22 is $24 due to short week).
Due to the need to secure staffing, we are unable to prorate the cost per day or number of hours.
We take the supervision of your children seriously!
NYA’s Play+ Camp is licensed by the State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood which requires our team of Adult Camp Directors to be properly vetted through the State. Additionally, we go above and beyond by ensuring all of our counselors are CPR and First Aid Certified.
At NYA, we love sports, games, and being active. Our Play+ Camps are days filled with all of those components and more, to keep our little campers moving and healthy! Our staff cultivates an environment of teamwork and good sportsmanship, because we understand our role in being a foundational piece to the overall youth development in our community. We’re the place for “run and fun!”

SCHOOL & HOLIDAY CAMPS
During school holidays and days off NYA offers micro versions of our popular Play+ Summer Camp. Play+ is all about FUN –
sports, games, team challenges, and obstacle courses!
For early dismissal days students can take the bus from NPS to NYA! We intentionally cap attendance to ensure a smaller group setting where students can create fun arts and crafts projects and of course…run and get their daily dose of physical activity.
Newtown Schools, Allstar Transportation, and the NYA have coordinated to provide transportation from the Newtown Public Schools to the NYA again this year. This is a great service for students and families. We are grateful for the partnership between the organizations that allow this to be possible. Here are a couple important pieces of information to be aware of when utilizing this service.
Elementary and Reed Schools:
•A note must be sent from home, to school, which states that your child will be dropped off at NYA.The note must include the program they are attending and the dates.
•Children take their regular bus but get off at the NYA which is the last stop.
Middle and High Schools:
•Middle School and High School students who have an NYA membership or are registered for an NYA after school program (scheduled immediately following school dismissal) can utilize the daily bus transportation.
•Please note that for liability reasons and lack of waiting area, we cannot accommodate the supervision and hosting of early drop-offs for programs starting later in the day, or that are being run by another organization.
•If student members are coming to the NYA for Open Gym Basketball, it is important to regularly check the availability of the basketball courts at www.NYA.EZFacility.com. We do our best to provide as much Open Gym time as possible, but as the schedule gets busier in the colder months, the time becomes more limited.
•We remind students after-school that there is no food in the gym/courts and no outside food (or ordering delivery of food) to the facility.
•Due to the volume of people in the gym during the after-school period, if student’s backpacks do not fit in a locker, they will be held in a room off-of the main lobby. We are not responsible for individual’s belongings and encourage the use of a locker with one’s own personal lock.
