Why Us?

Your Teens Have Fun While Gaining Valuable Experiences.

Here at STC, we have paid close attention to the activities that these young adults enjoy doing, and we’ve designed our facilities to cater to them, in a very positive, constructive and beneficial way. Just like anyone else, these young adults desire social interaction, fun physical activities, being creative and challenging themselves both mentally and physically. We provide the opportunity to engage in activities that are not only fun and enjoyable, but also beneficial to both the short term and long term demands these teens will face moving forward. Here at STC, teens learn the value of team work, leadership, responsibility, accountability and confidence.
