Activity Nights

Activity Nights are one of our longest standing programs (est. 1992). These events are fun and safe events for middle school students hosted at the local middle schools. Each event has a local DJ, dancing, gym games, karaoke and more.

Admission is $7 at the door. Parents are encouraged to volunteer.
