Jefferson Township Teen Scene (JTTS), in conjunction with the Jefferson Township Recreation Department provides positive opportunities for resident teens ranging from 6th to 9th grades. The aim of Teen Scene is to offer teens a place where they can gather with one another in a safe and supervised environment.
Activities, programs, and special events take place at Camp Jefferson and/or other designated sites in town. JTTS offers these young adults opportunities to foster positive experiences and strengthen social bonds in a clean, drug-free environment where they can relax, take advantage of the activities/program and be themselves.
Themed Safe Events
Events are themed and well planned with Peer Chaperones (10th to 12th graders from Jefferson Township High School) and parent volunteers utilized to provide a safe environment. Most events take place on the 3rd Friday of each month. Parents of registered teens will be contacted by email of any upcoming events. A registration fee of $40 is for a full year of membership but a few events may require an extra fee.
JTTS is open to all 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade children of residents of Jefferson Township only. Guests are not permitted, and all participants in the JTTS must be registered.
