For students in grades 5-8 as of May 2019

Extreme Teens teaches our tweens and early teens specific outdoor recreation skills in addition to creating and using their own budget for special activities. Each morning, participants will receive instruction from our team of avid hikers and paddlers in our community. In the afternoons, participants are in charge! They will design and manage their own budget and schedule to pick the activities that they want to do most. Do they want to go bowling? See a movie? Grab a milkshake? It's up to them! Extreme Teens is led by our Y staff team with the help of each week's volunteer instructors. All transportation to and from activities is included.

This summer, we explored:

Bike Week – This two-wheeled week is spent on our local biking trails with the Wenatchee Valley Velo Club. Learn how to safely ride and manage a bike, adhere to biking rules and laws, and maintain and clean trails! Bikes are available for those in need.

Hike Week - Spend this week learning to hike on our Wenatchee Valley trails with Seth Wendzel and the Washington State University 4-H Challenge Programs. In addition to hiking, this week will feature an introduction to climbing and ropes courses at the WSU Extension Challenge Ropes Course.

Paddle Week - We are partnering with the Wenatchee Row and Paddle Club to provide skill-building lessons on the Wenatchee and Columbia Rivers. Spend this week on the water learning how to canoe and kayak both as a team and going solo!


Each one week session of the Wenatchee Valley YMCA’s Summer Day Camp is packed with trips to area parks, educational theme-related activities, team challenges, group games, special events, and swimming.
