Tween Camp

This isn't your average summer camp! Get your 6th-8th graders out from in front of the TV and they will be inspired to stay active, discover new interests, and make life-long friends. Tween campers have a style and a pace all their own and through a mixture of structured activities our program has been designed to meet their needs. Just like your preteens, Tween Extreme is always on the go, therefore drop off and pick up locations will change daily based on activities.
