2018 Summer Program

La Plata Youth Services

Summer Program

The 2018 La Plata Youth Services Summer Program is a 10-week program starting mid-June with experiential education activities and service learning projects for ages K-17. Activities and projects will put philosophy, theory, and practice in an understandable context for participating youth to reflect upon. LPYS will encourage youth to make connections between things they experience and learn in activities, and the valuable service they provide in the community.

Past programs included:

  1. Mountain Biking
  2. Gardening & Sustainability
  3. Art Exploration

Each series consists of 4 experiential education activities and one related service learning project.

There is a “fun day” at the end of each month to celebrate the hard work of participants. Students must participate in the monthly service day in order to attend each monthly fun day.

All summer programming events will start and end at La Plata Youth Services.  Summer Program 2019 TBA. This program is completely free, but we do ask that participants bring a lunch and water bottle to stay hydrated.

Participation is referral based.
