During Summers, we take a break from our usual after-school programming to take our teens on a variety of special events, specialty sports activities, service trips, and camp trips. These excursions and trips allow teens and mentors to spend quality time together building relationships, as well as allowing us to provide more experiential learning opportunities for our teens.
We facilitate monthly events for our teens to have fun with each other and with mentors, and to invite friends to come who may not know what MYTHIRDPLACE is about. Events include activities like beach days, paddleboarding, bowling, movie nights, larger events like our annual Halloween Zombie Escape, and much more. Our events provide many great memories for teens and mentors alike look back on together.
Through partnerships with California State Parks, we host a handful of these camps throughout the year. During each FAMCAMP, teens are challenged to step out of their comfort zones and fully engage in the camping experience. The purpose of this camp is to get away from it all, gain understanding and appreciation for the outdoors, dream big dreams for their futures, and build community.
