Train Today. Perform Tomorrow.

We help our campers explore their passions and work on their skills to get to the Next Level. Campers have the opportunity to create a fun filled day packed with possibilities: from experiencing new challenges, exploring their passions and potential and trying something new. Our campers will discover their love for design or working hard to get that killer shot.

At NLDC, we balance the intensive sports and academic training with good ol’ fashioned fun, and that’s something that you can’t find at other sports day camps in the area. We have top-notch teachers and instructors from all over NY, NJ and CT who specialize in training children, but it’s what happens beyond the sports and classroom that makes NLDC so unforgettable. In addition to participating in a variety of activities , NLDC campers have the opportunity to participate in a variety of traditional camp activities such as the Apache Relay, Color Run, Water Wars and Wacky Sports Day to name a few.

At NLDC we like to keep it interesting. So, no day at camp is exactly the same. A few times each week, campers are strongly encouraged to choose an elective activity outside of their comfort zone.

Learn. Explore. Achieve!
