Thanks for an amazing Summer 2017!
Thank you to the Board of Selectmen for recognizing the Youth Center on our amazing 2017 summer programs! We appreciate all of our staff, participants, and parents who helped us make it so special! Our Facebook page is the place to go for all of our photos from Summer 2017, but here's a quick recap of our summer:
Summer Fun and Sports & Rec
We extended Summer Fun and Sports & Rec from a 6 week to a 7 week program, and embarked on an amazing new collaboration with the school department's special education programs. We're happy to report that between the Sports & Rec, Atkinson and Drummond playground programs, we gave over 600 kids in K-8 and 85 high school and college employees an unforgettable summer.
Middle School Summer League
Our Joseph Walsh Summer League had one of its best years, under the leadership of our employee of the summer, John Boudreau.
Girls Week & Boys Week
We were able to offer a variety of amazing programs for middle schoolers, from Girls Weeks and Boys Week...
Knight Work and Step Up
to community service...
Programs & Field Trips
to sailing, climbing, launching rockets, and filmmaking!
And if that's not enough, we hiked, biked, rafted and challenged ourselves at the Ropes Course!
