RAFT (Recreation Activities for Teens)

RAFT is a year-round club for teens in Grades 6 - 8. The club's purpose is to offer members safe, quality trips and special events they have expressed an interest in, at little to no cost. This past year over 1,000 teens joined and participated in the planned events. To join the club, complete the membership form.


There is a $10 yearly membership fee that entitles the student to admission for each event. Students receive monthly newsletters with information about upcoming trips and special events. All students who were RAFT members in the 2016 - 2017 school year should keep their card.
