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.
