NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – Following a successful first summer hosting weekly skill-based camps at the Ursuline School in New Rochelle, Next Level Camp for Girls is expanding its services to raise money for local charity.
In its inaugural year in New Rochelle, the Next Level Camp For Girls provided “weekly, skill-based camps that inspire girls of all abilities and interests in grades three through nine” that helped hundreds to “find themselves” and develop the tools and skills necessary to help them become active youth leaders in the community.
With summer coming to a close and schools reopening to students, organizers have arranged a “day at Next Level Camp” to be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Columbus Day on Monday, Oct. 12. The camp will cost $55, with proceeds being donated to The Summer Camp, a non-profit residential summer camp for inner city and rural girls between the ages of 6 and 18-years-old that come from low-income families and foster homes.
The brainchild of Ed Metzendorf, programs at the Next Level Camp For Girls focus on sports, arts, STEM education and leadership. He said that the girls are offered an elective based schedule, which allows them to selectively choose which activities they are most interested in honing in on.
“A day at Next Level Camp” will include the normal program offerings that made it such a popular destination this summer, including lacrosse, basketball, soccer, yoga and acting. Those interested in attending can register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (914) 341-1488.
“The camp’s mission is to inspire girls of all abilities and interests, to explore new possibilities, develop confidence and participate in fun-filled learning in a structured environment,” Metzendorf said. “Our staff works with the girls to make the most of teachable moments.”
