Do I have flexibility in the number of weeks my Son or Daughter can attend?
Yes. Your son or daughter will have the option of attending 1-5 weeks. You choose the week or weeks that work for you. But remember,
our program is designed so that with each additional week, your campers are enhanced with new chances that create growth as an athlete, student and a person. A special discount is offered when you register for more than two (2) weeks at a time. See Dates & Rates
When camp is in session, can we add on weeks during the summer?
We would be thrilled if you decide to add on weeks contingent on availability of course. (We have a maximum number of campers permitted to participate per week and strive to maintain a safe and effective coach to camper ratio.)
Payment is requested in full, via cash or check and MUST be received by the first Monday of his/her added week(s). A special discount is offered when you register for more than two (2) weeks during registration. See Dates & Rates
What should my child bring with him to camp?
Their backpack should contain sunscreen (administered for the first time prior to leaving home in the a.m.), a water bottle filled with cold water (we will take care of the refills) and any specific sport gear such as shin guards, lacrosse sticks or baseball bats. And please label everything!
What if my child needs medications at camp?
All medications must be maintained and administered by our Nurse. Separate forms are required to be filled out prior to camp.
What do I do if my child cannot make it to camp on any given day?
Please call the camp office or email us as early as possible to let us know. Unfortunately, we can not refund any missed days or guarantee make-up days. (depending on the availability each week)
Besides playing sports or working on their requested skill, what else will my child do at NLDC?
How does Camp Idol or a slam dunk contest sound? The entire camp joins together and shows off their team spirit with these fun activities. Your son will be able to show off his creative side with team banner painting; tie-dye days; team skit, and cheer. And your daughter might bring home a new love for lacrosse or a huge grin after winning the Next Level Cup.
Is NLDC a competitive camp?
Our focus is on building skills, sportsmanship and teamwork. NLDC is NOT about the pressure to win.
Will my travel athlete be challenged in his sport (s)?
Your son or daughter will be challenged and our coaches are trained to motivate him/her to advance their skills. Our program inspires growth and improvement for both the travel and recreational athletes in all the sports we offer.
Will my child play a variety of sports at NLDC?
Your son/daughter will be challenged and our coaches are trained to motivate him/her to advance their skills. Our program inspires growth and improvement for both the travel and recreational athletes in all sports we offer.
Can my child come to camp and just work on one sport?
For our younger campers, our program offers the chance to experience variety and develop the confidence they need to determine where their interests may lie. For our older campers, they have the opportunity to focus on their sport of choice. However. we strongly believe that multi-sport participation increases the athletic IQ of players and encourage campers to sample a variety of sports.
What if my child is not a great athlete and has never played various sports?
We will provide the perfect environment for him/her to explore interests he/she may have in different sports, electives or in the arts, all while having a blast!
I read that my child will grow as an athlete AND a person. How do you accomplish personal growth?
