The Nia Challenge

June 21, 2021 - August 13, 2021

9AM – 3PM

For 2021, NIA is offering an exciting 8-week program for children and youth during the summer months in partnership with the GPEC (Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative) and PPCY (Public Citizens for Children and Youth).  Learn more.
It is designed for children ages 5-12 with the option of participating for 4, 6, or 8 weeks.

The NIA Challenge is for those who are ready to enjoy a fun-filled day packed with cool activities, off-site programs, outdoor sports, water activities, the performing arts, field trips, guest artists, double dare days, and our ultimate Jr. Olympics Day which culminates our summer extravaganza! Each day is jammed with activities reflecting cool theme weeks and many more surprises! Children leave at the end of the day looking forward to the next!

The NIA Challenge is not just about fun and games - we cater to your child's educational needs over the summer as well. We recap the work from the previous school year and prepare them for the upcoming year through our Reading Challenge; where the children and Youth are challenged to read as many books as they can throughout these warm months and write book reports for each book! They receive prizes and rewards to inspire them along the way! Also, there's our annual camp Spelling Bee, worksheets, group study and discussions! Other daily activities include: Swimming, sports, movie days, self-directed play activities and academic enrichment activities.
