NARA Summer Camp creates an environment for children to grow physically and socially.  Our dedicated staff works with peer groups to engage children in activities both challenging and fun.

A variety of age-appropriate activities is offered each week including Arts and Crafts, Drama, Sports, Group Challenges, Nature, Swimming and more!
Additional special activities and field trips are based on each week’s theme.


We now offer a NARA Summer Camp discount for your second and any additional children in your immediate family after paying full-price for the first child.  If registering for Camp programs with different rates, the higher rate will apply first.
