Teen Scene

Grades rising 7th - 10th

We get it…7th – 10th graders want something a little different from the status quo. We offer jam-packed sessions with camp favorites and exciting new experiences. 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 - 10th 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 - 10th 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 - 10th graders as the face of Triple C Camp.

All About Teen Scene

Teen Scene campers will jump into a project based program where the sky’s the limit for creative innovation, problem solving, and teamwork. Each session will have a guiding question that the campers get to answer. We know that two heads are better than one, and we’ll be putting our (physically distanced) heads together to think outside of the box with our oldest campers. This hands on program will inspire our campers to think in new ways, face fun challenges, and celebrate mistakes as they build and create solutions together.

What's special in Teen Scene

Choice Activities

Throughout the session campers will have the opportunity to make individual choices from a selection of offered activities.

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.

Extended Experiences

Teen Scene campers occasionally may spend time off camp property to appropriate community settings while maintaining COVID-19 precautions.  This is a huge privilege and with privilege comes responsibility.

Why?

We recognize the need for 7th – 10th graders to experience variety. Our Teen Sceners love to explore our local area. Being safely out in the community provides a setting to practice our inner group social skills and make excellent choices.

Projects

During their session(s) Teen Scene will be working together on projects using guiding questions.  They’ll be using their brains in fun and innovative ways as they utilize their skills as engineers, artists, designers, and architects.

Why?

This is the perfect opportunity for Teen Scene to solve problems, think outside the box, and explore different types of career opportunities.  They’ll learn new skills, and utilize their current talents.  Camp is a place where mistakes are celebrated, thoughts are tested, and campers can be truest versions of themselves.

Flexibility is the key to camping. We know that families have busy lives, so we try to be accommodating to all families needs.

Lunch

To maintain compliance with the guidelines and recommendations set by the Virginia Department of Social Services Child Childcare Licensing Department, campers will need to pack their lunch and at least two snacks each day.  Lunches will be eaten outdoors, weather permitting, in their small groups.
