Goals: To provide campers with recreation and leisure activities during the summer months. Activities will stress socialization, independence, motor development, leisure education and an overall sense of well-being through participation.

Dates and times will be established once Virtual Camp Interest Forms have been completed. NSSRA staff will work with camper’s ESY schedules to determine the specifics that work best for the campers attending the virtual camp program.


NSSRA offers day camps held throughout the year that facilitate social interaction and activities within a structured recreational atmosphere. These camps give participants a chance to drop their backpacks off at the door and experience the adventure of learning in a setting outside of the classroom.

To be eligible for camp, participants must have a current Annual Information Form (AIF) on file. Camps are typically for school-age participants through 22 years old. Click here for our Day Camp Policies.
