Welcome to Teens in Motion at Helix High School, an afterschool and full-day camp program for teens and young adults ages 12-22 with developmental disabilities. Our afterschool program is located on-site at Helix High School, and we are able to serve any student who qualifies. See our flyer for more details.

Full-day camps for Winter, Spring, and Summer are held at Toby Wells YMCA.

Our goal at Teens in Motion is to provide a safe space to foster friendships, learn life skills, & create fun opportunities for our students to thrive in our community.

Having Teens in Motion at the high school campuses provides an inclusive environment that creates experiences to learn about others with different abilities. We take trips out into the community building foundations for independence, working on individual goals, and supporting future job skills for our students.
