Fun, healthy recreation opportunities for teens abound at the

Fun, healthy recreation opportunities for teens abound at the 10th Annual Xtreme Teens Open Houses next Friday, October 9!

Do you ever hear the statement, “I’m bored; there’s nothing to do!” from the teens you know? The Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation has the cure for boredom blues—Xtreme Teens!

Help us spread the word to any young people you know that next Friday, October 9 from 7-10 pm, youth ages 10-17 and their families are invited to check out everything the Xtreme Teens program has to offer at our 10th Annual Open Houses.

Between 7 and 10 pm that night, teens can stop by any Prince George's County M-NCPPC community center, Allentown Fitness & Splash Park, Fairland Sports and Aquatics Complex, the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex or Mount Rainier Nature Center to see our programs in action. That night, teens and pre-teens will have the opportunity to meet the dedicated leaders of the Xtreme Teens program and learn all about the exciting year-round recreational programs available to them, such as arts, nature activities, job opportunities, service learning and volunteer projects, classes, trips, health and wellness programs, college preparation, open gym and sports.

Teens and pre-teens can also register to win an iPod Touch that night when they scan their FREE M-NCPPC Youth ID cards—the passport to the Xtreme Teens program. If your teens don't already have an ID card, no problem! Their parent or guardian can sign the whole family up for a SMARTlink account at the open houses, and the teen will be able to get a FREE M-NCPPC Youth ID card there.

Attached is a PDF flier about the open houses you can print and hand out to interested teens and families. For more information, call 301-699-CALL (2255); TTY 301-446-3402. Thank you for your help in spreading the word about Xtreme Teens!
