What is Next Level 2U? We know many children won’t be able to participate in their summer camp program because of the pandemic. Next Level 2U brings summer camp to your backyard or nearby park with your child choosing the activities they want to participate in.
Can my child participate with friends? YES! We want you to form your own groups so your kids know exactly who their session of fun will be with. We ask for a minimum of four (4) campers; maximum of (8) per session. There is also the option of private one-on-one coaching in our Sports Academy program.
Do I have to commit to registering my child for multiple weeks? No you do not. These are unprecedented times that we are living in and we want to give families the flexibility to register for the amount of time that fits into your family’s schedule. We schedule our staff based on registrations that are received on a first-come, first-served basis. We do give priority to families who register for multi-week programs.
What equipment do I need to provide? For our sports program, the campers will need to have their own primary equipment for health sanitation reasons. So for example, if your child chooses soccer then you would need to have your own soccer ball. Our staff will bring supplemental equipment such as cones. All Next Level 2U equipment is thoroughly cleaned before each use.
Will Next Level 2U staff wear masks? Our staff strictly adhere to mandated regulations regarding COVID-19. When necessary, our staff will wear masks and gloves and follow all social distancing requirements. We are committed to insuring the safety and health of our campers.
What is the ideal location for your program? Our staff is prepared to give your child an outstanding program in your backyard and/or driveway. If you prefer to have them meet you at a nearby park that you are able to use, that is a great option as well. All programs rely on outdoor locations only, so they are weather dependent.
Will my child have the same staff member each day? Yes, you will have the same staff member for the entire week. Our staff look forward to building positive relationships with your child.
Who is Next Level Camp 2 U Staff? All staff complete an extensive application process including interviews, reference checks and background checks. Our staff enjoy working with kids and are motivated, energetic, and talented people that can lead, teach, and our passionate about camp. Staff members also participate in a training program before camp starts,
Will I have the contact information for my staff? Yes, you will have that information after we assign a staff member. If your child isn’t feeling well on a given day or weather changes at the last minute, we want you to be able to promptly contact your counselor/coach/specialist.
Will an adult need to be home while camp is in session? Yes, a parent, guardian or responsible adult must be home to tend to any and all emergencies that arise. The adult present at the host yard of the session, also known as the host contact, must assume complete responsibility for all participants involved.
How do I pay for camp? Payment can be made by credit card through our registration system. No money should change hands with our staff. IMPORTANT: Payment must be made in full BEFORE your registered session or your child will not be able to participate.
Can you tip our staff? YES! We encourage tipping if you feel your counselor is deserving.
If I was already registered for one of the Next Level Camps, can I use the money for Next Level 2 U? Yes, if you have already paid your tuition in full or in part for Next Level Summer 2020, you will be able to use the money in your camp account to pay for 2U sessions.
Can a sibling or a friend jump into a Next Level 2U session without being registered? Please, under no circumstances, should you have an unregistered sibling or friend jump into the 2U learning and fun. All participants must be registered without exception.
What are the various reasons a session might be postponed/cancelled?
Weather related including rain, storms, extreme heat, etc.
An involved staff member or camper is exposed to illness before, during or after a session.
An involved staff member or camper starts feeling sick during a session.

Is there an occasion where a coach or camper will need to enter your home? Yes, please know you must permit our staff into your home if an emergency arises that requires shelter. Of course, NL2U campers will also need to enter your home or sheltered area for these same reasons.
What happens if your camper starts feeling ill during an NL2U session? If a camper begins to feel ill during a session, he/she will immediately safely distance under the supervision of the Next Level staff member, and your host contact will contact the respective parent immediately. The host contact will be expected to take responsibility of their camper as soon as possible, making sure to extract him/her from the camp premises

What happens if a camper family is exposed to illness outside of an NL2U session? If at any time your camper feels ill, or a member of your household feels ill, it is incumbent upon you to immediately notify the camp office and cancel all scheduled camp days until the requisite quarantine period is over or for the remainder of the camp season in order to guarantee the safety and health of all involved.
