Addison County Teens to offer summer camp
MIDDLEBURY — Addison Central Teens’ summer camp sign-ups are open. The Teen Center, which provides a drop-in space with food, support, and games during the school year, is running another five weeks of camp this summer.
After a successful run last summer, there are 10 spaces in each week of camp, and they are in demand. Each week costs $75, with scholarships available, and runs Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
While there are a couple of repeat themes, the schedule of events is brand new. ACT is introducing a Teen Talent week, where youth are able to explore their hidden talents, and discover new ones. Their final week, “Escape the Room!” will see the teens trying out a professional escape room, then building one in the back room of the Teen Center.
This year, led by AmeriCorps member Cicilia Robison, and Middlebury College intern Aidan Wertz, ACT is doing something a little different. Every Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at the end of camp, instead of pickup at the normal time, ACT will be hosting a community dinner where teens can show off their skills and learning from the past week. Families, friends, and community members are invited to attend.
Registration is currently open for these camps. The camps will serve teens entering 7th grade through age 15. Sign up at middteens.org, An announcement of ACT’s summer activity plan for older teens is forthcoming.
