Teen Summer Programs

“So much experience and personal growth can be packed in when the leaders, the sites, and program structures are as wisely crafted, tried and true, as VISIONS. As a past VISIONS summer program director, I know that VISIONS combines high ideals with high standards. The result is an extraordinary program.”
