An engaging and enriching outdoor day camp

No Bad Weather Summer Camp & Sports Academy was founded in the Summer of 2020 with the goal of offering a safe, fun outdoor experience for young children. The initial idea might have been to offer a safe break from home schooling and screen time, however we have seen it proven time and again that spending time outdoors and getting familiar with various sports is important in any given circumstances - a gift we can give to our children to raise the next generation of healthy outdoors enthusiasts.

Classes are organized in small groups allowing students a much-needed chance to socialize in a safe and healthy environment and build lasting friendships.  

Taking advantage of all that New York City and the surrounding area has to offer, we continue to provide opportunities for kids to participate in a wide array of adventurous outdoor activities such as

  • Mountain Biking 
  • Hiking
  • Surfing
  • Swimming  
  • Skateboarding

No Bad Weather Summer Academy starts with Jun 27, 2022 and will run weekly throughout the summer, ending with week of Aug 29, 2022.

New for Summer 2022: Two parallel summer camp programs to choose from

    NBW Summer Sports Academy is suitable for preschoolers aged 6 to 10 years. We have made exceptions for children aged 5 that have been with us all year round and will continue to evaluate exceptions on a case by case basis. Some children might be ready earlier and we are open to set up a trail to determine whether they are ready.
