Welcome to Next Level Summer Academy

At Next Level, we strive to build the life skills, sports abilities, and self-confidence of all our campers. We aim to nurture and develop good habits, a positive attitude, and great moral character in our campers.

Next Level Summer Academy is the ideal location for a Sleep-Away Camp!

We offer three one-week sessions during July on the beautiful campus of St. Thomas More, a private boarding school located in Oakdale, CT. 

The beautiful 100-acre lakeside campus has several regulation fields, indoor and outdoor basketball facilities, indoor hockey rink, and a private beach. 

Our campus is conveniently located less than 2.5 hours from both NY and Boston.

Keep Up Your Training While Still
Enjoying Summer Camp

At Next Level kids don’t need to choose. Rather, they can experience both sports/enrichment training and summer camp in the same experience.

Campers can play all day or divide their time between our many activities on fields, courts, the ice rink, or classrooms.

Big Camp Experience With a
Small Camp Feel

We are large enough to offer diversified camp programs to suit every camper’s needs. 

Yet, with a small camper-to-staff ratio, we also have the resources to ensure campers and parents feel connected to the camp community and that their specific needs are heard, acknowledged and met.


We Make Summer Camp Easy for
Your Campers…and You!

Each camp session is a minimum of one week-long, making it an affordable and safe option for campers who have never attended sleep-away camp before. All campers are dropped off at camp on Sunday, giving parents an opportunity to see, first hand, where their child(ren) will be spending the week.

Expert Staff & Dedicated Coaches

Next Level hand-picked coaches and staff members are selected for their expertise in their particular sport, and for their passion and commitment to working with young athletes.

Our staff are unique because they must not only meet the needs of our campers and make sure each child is having an amazing time, but must also possess advanced skills or professional expertise in one of our specialty program areas. 

Our staff are the people your child will come home talking about. 

We are proud to maintain an overall staff-to-camper ratio of better than 1 to 5—one of the lowest in the industry—to provide your child with personal, 24/7 supervision. 

Our staff are carefully chosen, well-trained, and responsible.  Our extensive training exceeds industry standards and fully equips each staff member for the summer ahead.
