Lately at the BTC

As the school year is winding down, everyone is filled with summer jitters!

Lately at the BTC, we’ve been spending a lot of time outside, from running around the State House lawn, to cornhole, to ultimate ninja, to…a balancing contest on the edge of the garden bed? Actually, it looks pretty fun:


Such concentration.

We’ve also had some fun inside baking, playing cards and pool, and making things such as duct tape wallets. Check it out!


While we tend to stay very busy here, sometimes it’s best just to kick back and relax.


Too cool for school.


We also had the joy of throwing Nick a surprise party last Friday for his LAST FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE BTC (can you believe it?)! It was a ton of fun. The plan was to send Nick to the grocery store to pick up an extensive list of ingredients for Friday night dinner, and while he was gone, decorate and sneak in our friends from the Northfield Teen Center as well as staff from the Washington County Youth Service Bureau. I didn’t get a count of how many people there were, but there must have been close to 30 packed into our humble little teen center! When he came back, everyone popped out, pelted him with balloons, and celebrated! It was a great night, and a fantastic way to give thanks to someone who has dedicated almost 6 years to the BTC.


Here’s a picture from the night! Some NTC/BTC jamming on the lawn!



MAY it finally be spring?

Merry May!

It’s been a long run – cold, dark, gray. In the final stretch, we didn’t know if we’d make it. The prospect of spring seemed like a far off dream. But May is here, the sun is out,the birds are singing, and SPRING IS HERE!

At the BTC, nice weather opens up a whole new realm of possibilities. From gardening to playing sports on the State House lawn, being outside is a staple of BTC spring and summer. Check out the May calendar to see what we’re doing!


We will also be coming out with a summer calendar soon! Come talk to us at any point if there are any activities you’d like to do over the summer. Whether it’s painting a mural or taking a camping trip, we’ll try to make it happen!
