Welcome to the Middle School Program at the Seaside Youth Center!

This is a semi-structured program designed to encourage positive, independent decision making, socializing with peers, and having fun!

Mr. Ashaki Boelter coordinates our newly revamped Middle School Program. His experience and enthusiasm for helping tweens and teens is a winning combination for fun filled afternoons!

The Youth Center is open to students in grades 6-8, where students can get a light snack after school and can participate in activities such as pottery, STEM science projects, sports, outdoor education, homework help and more!

A pool table, board games, art supplies and outdoor sports equipment are here for you and your friends to enjoy!

The program runs from 3:15pm-5:30pm and begins one hour earlier on early-release Wednesdays.


Daily Check-In/Out

Participants are responsible for signing themselves in and out of the program. However, if you do not want your child to leave on their own, please let program staff know and indicate it on our District Emergency Form.  

Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District staff provides oversight of program
activities and are present at all times.
