Summer Teen Adventure

Click HERE for the 2017 Camp Brochure!

Teens ages 11-16 can experience a diverse amount of activities in a program that allow teens to exercise independence and responsibility. Weekly field trips are fun, exciting, and adventurous and meant to enhance and challenge teens in spirit, mind, and body.

Teens play a significant role in program planning and participate in weekly activities such as: group games, science and nature projects, specialty clubs, and arts and humanities activities. Their summer is spent in a safe, supportive, and positive environment that is more like a community where all are encouraged to exercise leadership skills, develop self-awareness, and grow with healthy perspectives, as well as part take in community service initiatives and events.

Registration forms are available at either front desk location or by clicking on the link above. There is a $20 weekly deposit for the weeks families register for. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. Registration forms can either be dropped off at the Downtown YMCA location or mailed to:

L.I.T (LEADERS IN TRAINING PROGRAM (ages 14-16): L.I.T's are integral members of the Teen Adventure Program and its day-to-day operations. They work alongside other Teen staff and are directly overseen by the Teen Program Coordinator. Throughout the summer, Teens are assisted in developing and exercising strong skill sets in the following areas: leadership, decision making, project planning, service, and program management. The problem is flexible and enjoyable for Teen Leaders and teachers them how to demonstrate independence, responsibility, and accountability. All interested participants much submit a separate application for the L.I.T. program and participate at a minimum of six weeks in the summer. Training begins in late May. For more information, please contact Secelie at or at 920-230-8950.
