Teen Life Skills Center Summer Camp is the perfect solution for teens who are in need of a wake-up call. Participating in this summer program will help your teen become physically and nutritionally fit, escape from bad influences, learn to be respectful, review important fundamental academic skills, and be on the right track when school starts again. If your teen needs extra help or attention after the summer program, Teen Life Skills Center allows parents to extend their students stay to the year round program where they can continue to learn respect, discipline, and hard work as well as continue their school work in an independent study type setting.


Teen Life Skills Center strongly encourages education and values it as a privilege. During the summer, students are taken through a basic skills review that will help them recall the most essential and basic reading, writing, and arithmetic. This skills review allows teachers to assess each students individual academic needs as well as helping students learn fundamental skills they may be lacking. If students extend their stay to the long term program they will advance to working with Penn Foster Career School which is the largest accredited school of independent home study. Teen Life Skills Center offers certified teachers and trained tutors to assist students with their individual needs.

  • 4 weeks – $8,000

Before I came to TLC, words like "family," "proactive," "compassion" and "goals," meant nothing to me. Looking back on this past year, I have learned a lot. I learned that my family is more important than anything else, I learned how to have respect for everyone including myself and I learned how to take responsibility for my actions.
