The Youth Department offers the After School Program, a Summer Program, and regular field trips along with various services in support of our youth.


Through the After School Program, students participate in homework completion; helpful Behavioral Health group sessions; fitness and recreation and more!


We also take students on field trips when one or both of our local school districts has no school. Through the field trips, we visit Whatcom County establishments for education, recreation and fun, including trips to Bellingham’s Sportsplex and the Trampoline Zone.


The Summer Program is packed with great events that none of our students will want to miss, including funded trips to places like Wild Waves, the Woodland Park Zoo, and the Birch Bay Waterslides.
