Camp NAC offers two different teen camps for our older campers: Teen Travel Camp and our Leader in Training (LIT) program. Teen travel camp is for campers ages 11-15 and these campers will take trips to a variety of popular destinations twice a week! When these campers aren’t on trips, they will participate in fun activities like aerial yoga and team challenges. Our LIT program teaches leadership skills to campers interested in becoming a counselor or working with kids. They will spend part of their day assisting a counselor and the other part enjoying a regular camp day, swimming and playing games.
  1. Additional Options — Being able to customize your camp experience is another thing that many camps are starting to do. Camp NAC’s additional options allow our campers to customize their summer. Our before and after care programs allow you to extend your camper’s day, starting at 7am or staying until 6pm.
