Summer Youth Camp


As news and information about the coronavirus pandemic continues to pour in, all of us at Niagara University are praying that our camp families are safe and doing their part to slow the spread of the virus. Just like you, we are not sure what the next few days, weeks or months will bring and we will continue to pray for you and your family's health and well being.

Due to the continuing effects of COVID-19, the university has been forced to make the some very difficult decisions regarding staffing and facility operations. As a result, a decision has been made to close the Kiernan Center indefinitely. Due to this, we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Niagara University Summer Youth Camp. Each year, we look forward to the start of camp and welcoming all of our new and returning campers. It is very hard for us knowing that we will not be able to experience the joy and companionship that camp brings this summer. Please know that we are thinking of all of you and will miss our campers dearly. Please tell your children that we are thinking about them and wish them all the best as we move through this very difficult situation.

General Information

Niagara University's summer youth camp is one of the finest in Western New York. The number of participants, who must be between ages 6-12, will be limited to approximately 80 campers per week. Camp registration will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Niagara University's summer camp aims to teach teamwork, motivational and wellness skills, and help campers make a lot of great new friends! It is our hope that each camper leaves our camp as a better person and has fond memories of spending a week at Niagara University.
