Teen Scene

Grades rising 7th - 9th

We get it…7th – 9th graders want something a little different from the status quo. We offer a jam-packed week of camp favorites and exciting new adventures. At a time in life when everything feels like it’s changing, we remain a steady force where teens can thrive.

 

The 6 guiding tenets of the Teen Scene Program
1

Social Growth

Our Teen Scene counselors partner with campers to create a welcoming, inclusive environment all summer long. We take the time to foster friendships, facilitate positive communication and lead by example.

2

Personal Growth

7th - 9th grade is a time of big changes! We help our teens embrace who they are and who they want to be. Our intentionally designed activities help navigate the tides of the early teen years.

3

Critical thinking

We encourage our campers to be problem solvers. Our 7th - 9th graders are given opportunities to think for themselves, adjust or revise in a safe caring environment.

4

Community

Camp focuses on campers belonging to a community. Both at camp and throughout Charlottesville, our Teen Scene campers see the impact they can make.

5

Social Skills

We know it is vital to develop social skills throughout the teen years. Practicing these skills allows teens to become thriving adults. Our Teen Scene campers start by introducing themselves to new people, making eye contact and using each other's names. These basic skills go a long way to making a good first impression.

6

Leadership

As some of our oldest campers we look to Teen Scene to help set an example of what it means to be awesome. With special privileges of being in Teen Scene comes the opportunity to practice important leadership skills. We have high expectations of our 7th - 9th graders as the face of Triple C Camp.

All About Teen Scene

Fabulous Field Trips are a very important part of the Teen Scene Program. The Teen Scene week includes two day trips out of camp, two days enjoying choice activities at camp and one morning of community service with an afternoon at a local park or pool. The community service day finds campers reading to children at a local Day Care Center, sorting food donations at the food bank, or making an impact by volunteering at other area locations. Day trips include hiking and swimming at local lakes, adventuring to Grand Caverns, canoeing and fishing at Walnut Creek, golf and tennis at Pen Park, tubing the James River and much, much more.

What's special in Teen Scene

Monday and Friday Choice Activities

Mondays and Fridays are great days to be in camp to start the week off right and finish strong. Both days, Teen Sceners get to choose from all the activities camp has to offer.

Why?

Choice activities is the best way for middle schoolers/rising high schoolers to do what they want to do.  When happy with the activities, the staff can help pre teens and teens work on social skills and friendships to develop for a lifetime.

Field Trips

Teen Scene campers go on field trips three days a week to give middle school age the independence and responsibility of being out and about in the community.  This is a huge privilege and with privilege comes responsibility.

Why?

We recognize the need for 7th – 9th graders to experience variety. Our Teen Sceners love to explore our local area. Being out in the community three days a week provides the perfect setting to focus on practicing social skills and making excellent choices.

Community Service

Every Wednesday Teen Scene does two hours of community service with organizations such as Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards, Charlottesville Parks and Rec., a retirement home or childcare facility. Campers know they’ve made a positive impact on the Charlottesville community.

Why?

This is a great chance for Teen Sceners to start giving back.  We want to set the tone for a lifelong opportunity of service to help those who are less fortunate.  Teen Scene campers really have it good…choice activities, field trips, and making a positive impact in our community!
