Summer Programming for youth plays a crucial role in the development of social skills, as well it provides structure throughout the summer months, with reading, games, arts & crafts, mindful activities and community collaboration.

Since 1976, the Summer Recreation Program has helped to provide a safe, structured environment for Wrangell's youth, where kids are encouraged to connect, play, create and develop solid social skills.
