Miss seeing other people? We always welcome new friends at Teen Group!
Teen group is the time to hang over Zoom, play games, make projects, and just chill out. We’ve laughed through hectic scavenger hunts, assembled paper house models, competed in Wheel of Fortune, and more.
We also like to celebrate holidays with themed scavenger hunts! They’re always hilarious and chaotic. We meet over Zoom, Allison announces a holiday-appropriate prompt (example: Find something you could use as a leprechaun hat), you race off to retrieve items, and then, one by one, present them to the group in friendly competition. The best part is the highly creative problem solving. It’s silly, fun, and everyone is a winner! Join us – the more, the merrier!
If there’s something you’d like to do or play, feel free to introduce it to the group. We’re all very friendly!

Our big project for summer 2020 was writing, voice acting, and editing an epic drama podcast! The teens created an exciting original story called The Portal Hoppers — listen and subscribe to the podcast here! They wrote 222 pages of script and showed up every week this summer via Zoom to record the entire thing! We’re in the process of editing and airing the episodes. Be sure to check it out!
