Spread the word!  Talk it up amongst your child(ren) and their friends….past participants have said that this program is a blast!!

 The Summer Teen Challenge's (STC) philosophy is to challenge kids to think and act on issues that they will be confronted with as teenagers.  The program activities help built self-esteem and encourage kids to work as a team. After being together for four weeks, the program is wrapped up with an exciting extended overnight trip.

Notes for Summer Teen Challenge:
  • Each session is comprised of 4 weeks. Each week is comprised of a "community service day," an "adventure day," a "good choices day," and some "fun" days. Register for this program now - as space is limited. The fee for STC includes a season's pool pass for your child.
  • An important contributing factor to the success of this program is daily attendance. A short group meeting occurs every morning to allow the sharing of thoughts and feelings. The whole group needs to be present on a regular basis so that the sharing of information can be held in an environment that feels "safe" environment. The big trip at the end of the program provides a valuable opportunity for the whole group to work together as a unit.
  • The program was developed to enhance communication skills and positive interactions among peers. Through activities and field trips, kids learn the value in trusting others while encouraging reliability, responsibility and resourcefulness. Part of this program is also dedicated to trying to guide the teens away from anti-social and risky behavior by building self-confidence and the ability to stand up for themselves in questionable situations.
  • Note: Outstanding balances must be paid before registering for any new programs. The general registration fee must be paid in full at least two weeks prior to its start. If unable to be paid in full by that time, a payment contract must be established with the PRD before the first day of the new program in order for your child(ren) to attend. As with the Playground Program, we ask that Peterborough residents who feel they may be eligible for a scholarship submit your application request by May 18.

Regarding the pool membership
  • Because of the way the computer system works, the price below is less the individual pool membership. You will be prompted to get the membership sometime through the registration process and that price will be included in the final price.
  • *$10/resident/season
  • *$53/non-resident/season

* Adjustments and discounts will be applied during checkout if applicable. *
