The Riverbender.com Community Center maintains a safe place for teens to hang out with their friends and the opportunity to make new ones; in a place that is free from the outside influence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. The Center's focus and number one goal is to provide youth the chance to be themselves while experimenting with new ideas, new technology, games, and through social, educational, and entertainment activities.

Summer Day Camps

Join us for a week of dance! Dance Camp is June 13-17, Monday through Friday, 1pm-4pm. Students will learn dance routines. At the end of the week, our group will perform on Friday at 8pm for families and friends! Dance Camp is only $50 for the whole week. For Grades 5 and up.

The Center will be hosting 3 week-long computer camps this summer. The topics will range from building your own computer and installing an operating system, to programming a video game and building a Minecraft server, to digital photography and editing cool photographs.

There's also a special week that is currently TBA - The Center does YouTube! Where students can come gather with their friends to recreate some of their favorite YouTube videos.

Keep watch on our Summer Day Camp page, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to be informed of times and dates. And help us spread the word!
