Youth Connection Summer Camp 2012

Holcomb Prevention is hosting a summer program that targets teens entering seventh, eighth, and ninth grades! The Youth Connection summer camp offers week-long workshops that use evidence-based curricula and is split into two parts: 1 1/2 hours of programming and 1 1/2 hours of teambuilding or leadership adventure activities. Each week-long workshop is Monday - Friday from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Studies show youth are more likely to engage in risk taking behaviors during these years including drug and alcohol use. Alternative activities focusing on leadership, community involvement, and increased family communication are protective factors that have been shown to increase positive behaviors. The cost of this summer program is only $25.00 per week-long session.

Held at: Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems Prevention/Education Office
126 E. Baltimore Ave., Media, PA 19063

Youth Connection is coordinated by Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems and funded by the Delaware County Office of Behavioral Health, Division of Drug and Alcohol Services.
