Location Tips

  • If you’re attending the NCA Performance session, your buddy instructor will contact you a few days before camp-be sure to let them know your team’s skill level! You can even send them video clips of stunts or pyramids you’re currently working! – Lyndy
  • If you can make time to work on stunt basics before camp, you’ll get even more out of NCA Performance!  We can help you move on to more elite skills!  – Paul
  • Century Park dorms are some of the best dorms around!  Each room has its own bathroom, and it’s a short walk to the cafeteria and gym!  – Whitney
  • If you’re attending the Christian camp session, bring your bible every day! A journal will be provided. – William
