Camp NACster – Traditional Variety Camp
Ages 3-12 | 9:00AM-3:00PM
Every day in Camp NACster is a new adventure, jam-packed with a variety of activities including group games, sports, arts & crafts, swimming and more! Once a week, campers also have the chance to try out NAC Youth Programs classes like Zumba, Tae Kwon Do, Fun Fitness and Gymnastics. At the beginning of each week, campers are divided into groups by grade level and follow a customized schedule for the remainder of the week.
In addition to all the fun games and activities, campers in Camp NACster enjoy an hour of recreational swim every day in the NAC’s outdoor pool complex. A certified American Red Cross lifeguard conducts a swim test each Monday for every camper. Campers who do not pass or do not want to take the swim test will be provided with a swim belt.
Every Wednesday, NACster campers are able to attend an optional field trip to a variety of popular destinations in the area at an additional cost. Summer 2017 field trips include Shady Brook Farm, Giggleberry Fair, the Bucks County Children’s Museum and many more. For a full list of dates and scheduled trips, please refer to the NACster activity calendar on the next page. Campers who choose not to attend the field trips will stay back at our facility where alternate activities will be offered.
