This program is designed for teens, ages 13-16 who want to have summer fun, but also want to further develop their leadership and communication skills as well as gain experience working with young children.
This group will be based at Forest River and will join the Forest River Adventure program at scheduled times during the day.
The Youth Leadership Program will have an assigned staff member who will plan and facilitate activities for the group during the morning times. Morning activities will include community service projects, leadership training and group activities. Teens will join the Forest River Program at mid-day for lunch. After lunch, teens will be assigned to assist with the Forest River Adventure afternoon activities. Teens are welcome to participate in the free Salem Summer Meals Program.
The city pool will be closed this summer for renovations. The city will be staffing some local beaches with lifeguards. In order for your child to swim at the beach, they must pass a swim test or they will need to wear a life jacket. Swim tests will be arranged through the Salem YMCA. Parents will be notified of when the testing will be done.
