Teen Summer Series returns after a banner launch year

Date Modified: Fri, 07/07/2017 - 11:47am

The Anthem Civic Building and the Community Center will team up once again to offer a Teen Summer Series for teens ages 12 yrs. and older. Teens are invited to the Civic Building for life skills workshops or teen topic presentations, arts and crafts, movie and game days, and fitness classes.

“The series had a great turnout last year, with 25-30 teens each week,” said Taylor McCulley, meeting and program manager for the Civic Building. “The feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive and we are excited to bring this program back again this summer.”

Registration is now open at the Civic Building and at the Community Center. The $30 registration fee includes all activities. If teens are only interested in fitness classes, they will be offered for a drop-in rate of $5 per class.
