At the NYA Summer Day Camp, a State licensed camp, boys and girls are given the opportunity to focus on growth in self-confidence, independence, and skill development. These qualities empower them to grow as leaders in a fun, productive, and safe environment. We prioritize staff to child ratio, which supports individualized attention, making campers feel a sense of belonging, and allowing for the creation of personal relationships. The NYA places a huge emphasis on friendly competition and sportsmanship, a foundational piece to the youth development in our community. 


Our Summer Camp promotes physical activity! We aim to create a well rounded experience for our campers, and fill their days with sports, arts and crafts, field games, fun inflatables,

theme day Fridays, and more! We make sure to enjoy the summer sunshine during lunch,

our weekly water activities, and games on the outdoor fields. NYA's state-of-the-art facility allows us

to keep the fun going regardless of rain or shine!
