Teen Summer Camp

Teen Camp gives youth ages 13-15 an alternative to just staying home or “hanging out” unsupervised. At a time when peer pressure is intense, we want to give youth the opportunity to be involved in a positive environment and show them that it is “OK” to still be a kid and have fun "playing" occasionally!  At the same time, our teen camps foster leadership development by giving participants the opportunity to help with decision making, planning and activity coordinating. Your teen will have the opportunity to learn and improve problem solving, communication, and interpersonal relationship skills.

Camp Details  

Our Teen Summer Camps are FREE. Camp start dates will begin on Monday, June 5th, 2023 and end on Friday, August 4th, 2022. We will not have camp Tuesday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day.
