Youth Programs

Our favorite memories as kids usually revolve around after-school baseball or dance practice. Add in the excitement of summer camp and lazy afternoons at the pool and what we thought was just summertime becomes the experience of a lifetime.

Before your future memories unfold, here’s where it all starts. Our youth programs are for ages 3-21, and there is an activity made just for each person.

Throughout the year we offer art, music, swimming, social clubs, sports programs and horseback riding, just to name a few. Many of these programs are offered after school during the school year or after camp in the summer. On Friday nights, teens ages 13-18 are invited to their very own “Friday Night Social” club, and Saturdays are jam-packed with activities for youth of all ages (including ice skating!).

A few things you should know:

  • Regardless of the program, participants are always encouraged to express themselves through their chosen activity.
  • Peer interaction and appropriate social behavior are a focus during all programs.
  • Most of NSSRA’s youth programming is organized and offered by age, not ability, so programs are listed for registration by age range or grade level.
  • From time to time, programs are offered for individuals with specific disabilities in mind.

We recommend you spend some time going through our program guide to find the best fit for you.
