How To Beat Those Back to School Blues!

At Camp NAC, we agree that summer is by far the best season of them all. We were lucky enough to get to extend our Camp NAC summer an extra week thanks to help of our NAC management team! Our campers have headed back to school for a brand new school year, complete with new teachers, books and homework. While our camp leadership team works year-round, planning for next summer, we know that our campers wish they could hurry up the clock to when that final bell rings. We came up with a few ways you can beat those back to school blues until it’s time to return to the best camp in Bucks County!

  1. Play Camp Games: Our team has done a few different blogs on fun camp games that our campers can play at home. While nothing is as fun as playing our awesome games at camp with all your favorite summer friends and counselors, you can still take some of your favorite games to play at home with siblings or friends. Let us know what your favorite camp games to play at home are.
  2. School’s Out Camp: Throughout the school year, Camp NAC offers a variety of camp dates for when our campers are off from school. Some dates include election day, Thanksgiving break, holiday break, spring break and even more! Getting a little taste of the fun to come this summer is sometimes the perfect way to beat your school year blues. School’s Out Camps have fun themes, similar to Camp NAC specialty camps.

  3. Fun Camp Crafts: Similar to our fun list of camp games that campers can play at home, we also have a bunch of camp crafts that are fun and easy to make. Crafts are a perfect thing to keep campers busy on rainy days or do outside for fun! We have put together a few step by step blog posts showing you exactly how to create cool crafts like launching rockets  and a magical wizards hat! Try them on your own when your camper is missing Camp NAC.
  4. Camp Sleepovers: All campers know that our summer sleepovers are so much fun. Who wouldn’t love staying the night at the NAC, playing fun games and swimming? Did you know that Camp NAC also hosts a spring sleepover during the school year? If your camper is having back to school blues, these Friday night sleepovers can be the perfect remedy. Campers’ favorite counselors come back to lead fun games and swim in the indoor pool.

We all know that heading back to school can put a damper on the end of summer. What else does your camper do to keep the summer camp fun going all year round?
