The American Youth Foundation operates programs throughout the year to offer the opportunity for youth to experience our wonderful properties. Youth are involved in activities at Merrowvista and Miniwanca almost every single day - in fact there are only about 40 days of the entire year where youth are not present at our sites! Our Year Round Programs typically occur outside the summer months and encompass Leadership Programs, Community and School Programs, and retreats. The Community and School Program is by far our largest in terms of number of youth served and it is an excellent way to incorporate our mission into the principles of your organization. Specific information about the types of programs, along with resources and contact info, can be found in this section of our website. Look around and if you have questions about anything please contact us.
