The YMCA of  Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy are thrilled to present an incredible opportunity for teens, ages 12-18 to join us for a 3-day TEEN LEADERSHIP RETREAT at CAMP MASON in Hardwick, NJ from October 13-15th .  Staff and teens from all three branches will come together in a positive environment, to engage in safe and age-appropriate activities that aim to foster new relationships, build self-confidence and teach new skills.  Teens will also be introduced to the Leaders Club program, organized for the purpose of developing youth as leaders and fostering a culture of service. The retreat and the Leader’s Club will provide teen members with knowledge and training that will help them to better serve others and to shape a healthy lifestyle themselves. Teens from each community will interact and learn from one another to identify ways that they can strengthen their leadership skills while also strengthening their own community. 

The retreat is free of charge for teens who are members of the Y and who show true interest and passion in growing, learning, and thriving from a rare experience such as this. Be a part of the ADVENTURE! Contact your local YMCA Program Director for more information, and to inquire about reserving a spot!

There will be information sessions held at the Metuchen & South Amboy branches on Friday, September 22nd at 7:00 p.m. and at the Edison branch on September 15th at 7:00 p.m.  In addition, to receiving more information about the YMCA, this information session will provide parents and teens with the weekend agenda, information about the weekend activities and you’ll get to meet the staff who will be in attendance with the teens.
