Youth and Teen Programs

Learn, create, grow, and thrive at Thanksgiving Point’s youth and teen programs! Our courses provide students with the opportunity to develop and practice skills that interest them outside of the classroom. These courses will help prepare students for the future and help strengthen their social and cognitive muscles.
