The youth center is amazing. I went there as a kid and was new to the area. They helped me come out of my shell and become a great person.

The Youth Center has awesome haunted house every year. My boys love going every year. The Haunted House is super cool and my boys always talk about it. This year we are so excited that it would be at the Historical Plaza. This is just so cool and great for the community. Thank you Youth Center for all you do.

I just would like to say, Thank You, the staff (or should I say Family). They never cease to amaze me with the lengths and effort they give to enrich the lives of so many children / families. I'm lucky to be able to witness the warmth and family that surrounds every thing they do. For that I thank you all and can't wait for the next opportunity to volunteer or help in any way I can! Thank You Staff, Volunteers, and Especially the people behind the scenes that (give and make it all able to happen) for all that you do!

Elise has so many wonderful memories from Teen Camp. I was very happy to know that the Youth Center offers this for the teens. I think it was very good for her and all the campers. Elise looked forward to going every day and I was happy that she was able to get to go to so many fun field trips, and do so many different activities. She loved it.

I signed my son for the summer. He is 5 years old and he already made friends. Staff are really nice at the camp. I was so affraid that he would not want to go. I checked on him several times already and he is having a blast. What a great camp. Great local camp. I am lucky I found this camp. My son loves it.

I volunteered at the Youth Center helping during after school program. I just wanted to do something different than my normal job. I met new friends and the experience was so rewarding. To work with staff and kids brought smiles to my face and made me feel good about being a part of this org! What a great job this Youth Center does for so many children in our community.
I am coming back every time I have availability and it's fantastic!
