Local summer camp serves 600 kids with no COVID cases


Newtown Athletic Club’s (NAC) summer camp program, Camp NAC, successfully provided a memorable summer experience for hundreds of children in the Lower Bucks County area.

This summer, the dedicated camp staff embraced new challenges presented by COVID-19, swiftly implementing the space and service updates required to continue to make summer better for their campers. The camp served 600 youth with no COVID cases.

To maintain the top hygiene, safety and physical distancing practices, Camp NAC aligned its health and safety standards with guidance from Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local government. By doing so, they were successfully able to provide a safe, Covid-free environment for their campers from early June through August.

Over a 40-year span, youth programming has continuously been a staple of the Newtown Athletic Club. As families transition into the fall season and adjust to the virtual learning options provided by their local districts, Camp NAC designed a new School Enrichment Program, attributing to the success of a safe summer season. The on-site School Enrichment Program will supplement what the schools will offer through the rest of the school year.

Through Newtown Discovery Preschool, located on NAC campus, full and half-day preschool and kindergarten options are also now available for children ages 2.5 to 6 years old. Visit to learn more.

With newly added youth programming for the general public and NAC members this fall, the NAC has made it its mission to continue to be a health hub for the community.
