Hola Amigos! Welcome to our Junior Teens (Amigos) program at La Semana! Junior Teens (those entering grades 8-10) are bused daily to the Scout Base Camp near Fort Snelling for their programming, departing All Saints Church by 8:30am and returning daily by 2:45-3:00 p.m. We partner with Base Camp staff to plan a week that is filled with both new activities and La Semana favorites. On Friday afternoon there is an Amigo party and then campers are bused directly to Fiesta to wrap up the week. Base Camp provides an amazing opportunity for our Amigos with their professional staff who have expertise in working (and playing) with teens. We typically have over 100 Amigos and lots of fun!
Every year we take Amigos’ and Parents’ feedback and incorporate changes and adjustments to the program and activities to make it even more fun and engaging for everyone. Be sure to look at all the information here, including schedules and activities. We look forward to seeing you at La Semana!
