Welcome to Teen Tanners
James Street Playground Program!
Pre-Teens and Teens entering grades 6-8 need their own space to have fun, and James Street park is where it's at! This playground program keeps participants off their devices all summer long as they socialize and play with their peers! Participants can look forward to sports, games, crafts, and field trips!
Rainy Day Information
If there is inclement weather throughout the day, we will go inside the school until the inclement weather passes. We will try to stay outside as much as possible.
Field Trips / Special Events
The list of field trips is outlined in the parent letter, linked below.
For all field trips to bodies of water, your child must complete a swim test ahead of time OR wear a life jacket the entire time. All participants in sessions 3-8 will need to complete a swim test prior to attending their water based field trips. Click HERE for additional swim test information and HERE for the form.
To complete a FREE swim test, please show up to the Torigian Family YMCA (259 Lynnfield St, Peabody, MA 01960) during one of the following dates and times. No appointment is required.
