The Best Camp in Town

KIDS THRIVE WHEN THEY'RE EMPOWERED TO PLAY

AS FEATURED ON

"What really won me over was after the first day of camp, my son came home and TOOK A NAP! He hasn't done that since he was 4. We knew he had an amazing day at NYA."

We
Believe

...that a love for sports can be found in everyone, that playing is learning, and that some of the best friendships are made on a court.

With our love for all things active and a teamwork mentality, we are building friendships to last way beyond the end of camp.

It's that #NYAplay mindset that keeps us young.

active kids

Kids have seemingly endless energy. We keep them busy all day long with drills, races, challenges, obstacle courses, and learning new sports.

Team Competitions

Kids learn how to participate in team competitions in a fun and healthy environment. We are a bully-free facility, and kids learn to work together for the good of the team.

Zero Screen Time

More & more studies are showing the harmful effects of electronic devices on young brains. Our camp has zero tablets, phones, TVs, computers - just 100% playtime.

Multi-Sport

Ever tried pickleball? What about team dodgeball? How about just understanding how points work in basketball? Kids get a solid exposure to all the sports NYA offers.

Community builder

Nothing brings kids together like making some of their best childhood memories together. We emphasize an environment of camaraderie, teamwork, and kindness through compassion.

Qualified Coaches

Our camps are lead by the best camp counselors in town. Our counselors have a love for kids and a passion for sports. Safety, kindness, and fun are the fundamentals of our camps.
