NACster – What does a NACster camper looks like?

  • Your NACster camper loves a fast paced environment and has many interests. NACster has a daily theme which leaves your camper always moving and doing a little bit of everything.

This camp also allows campers to get out and go on a field trip, at an additional cost, once per week. Campers have their online permission slip completed and payment prior to the trip. This can be found online via your CampMinder account. Campers choosing not to attend the field trip will follow an alternate schedule back at camp. Please see the activity calendar for a list of field trips.  
Sometimes NACster gets a little competitive, but things always calm down with a noncompetitive activity such as an arts and craft project or their daily time in the NAC’s outdoor pool complex. Campers spend 1 hour a day in our outdoor complex, weather permitting. A certified American Red Cross lifeguard provides a swim test to each camper on Mondays. Campers who do not pass the swim test or do not wish to take the test will be given a life jacket for their safety.
 
 Campers in NACster will be divided each week by grade level to allow age-appropriate activities for each group. They will spend the duration of the week with their group. Each group has 1-3 counselors who will attend to their campers throughout the week.  This is important as it allows campers to grow with kids their own age just as they would in school and also to develop friendships with their counselors as well.
