NSD Alumni consistently tell us back that some of their most cherished K-12 memories and friendships were from their time spent at our residential camps. We are proud that our summer camps are formative social experiences for our student body, who collectively have gone on to become movers and shakers across law, technology, medicine, business, finance, and government.
Our camps are designed with student safety and well-being in mind. Explore the categories on the left to learn about the steps NSD takes to ensure a safe and fun learning environment for our students.

Starting with breakfast, we meticulously track student attendance to ensure we can promptly troubleshoot when a student at our camp is not present. We have attendance check in every few hours, and students are constantly supervised by our faculty in classroom settings, ensuring we have adults monitoring our students at all times.
Each residential camp location has campus security, who we coordinate with closely to ensure our students stay safe. We have had thousands of students attend our camp without incident, and campus security understands how much we prioritize and value student safety. Security has access to all student roster information and are in close contact with camp directors.
Each university campus we work with has vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian dining options. We also coordinate with families ahead of camp to make sure our university campus dining options can accommodate for allergies.
Students have the option to commute to and from camp or stay in residential housing. Each campus is state-of-the-art and has hall monitors, air-conditioning, laundry services, vending machines, and separated dormitories for boys and girls.
