Programs for Teens at Membership Beach
Teens today spend countless hours in front of a TV or phone screen, barely communicating through anything besides text or interacting directly with their peers. At Membership Beach, the phones are left at home and your teen is outside in the fresh air, playing and growing with others their age.
TWEEN & TEEN PROGRAM
The Tween & Teen program is based on a freeplay model designed to facilitate new friendships and allow teens to spend their summer outside in a rewarding and fun program.
The group meets every day at 9:30 AM and have their headquarters at Julia’s Place Pavilion by the volleyball area. Each day participants should bring a swimsuit, towel, sneakers, a bagged lunch and drinks. Pick up is at 4:00 PM.

HIGH SCHOOL VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
High School Volunteers have an opportunity to give back and help out at Membership Beach. There are several areas in which teens can volunteer, each offering a different experience for the Teens.
- Tween & Teen Program Volunteer (3-4 volunteers needed): Volunteers will shadow the Teen Supervisor and help design, develop and implement the program. They will get to know the program participants and experience what it takes to lead a group.
- Arts & Crafts (2-3 needed): Volunteers will help Arts & Crafts Directors prepare projects and will help kids of all ages become the next Picasso or Van Gough.
- Swim Lessons (3-4 needed): Volunteers will be in the water assisting with swim lessons. Occasionally, lessons can have many participants, and having the extra hands and eyes on the little ones, is extremely helpful. Volunteers will not be responsible for any instruction.
- Boating Lessons (1 needed): Volunteers will assist with Ca-Rowing, Boating Adventures and Sailing Lessons. A background in boating is essential for this area of volunteering.
- Nature Education (2 needed): Volunteers will assist the Nature expert on the trails keeping the group together and making sure to keep eyes on the little ones at all times.
