XCEL Summer Youth Program

What is XCEL?

XCEL is an extension of the S.T.A.R.S. program at Utica United Methodist Church led by specially trained young adults. Students in our community who are 12-15 years old are our focus. We meet Monday - Thursday for 6 weeks in the summer beginning in June. The XCEL program is free to all, but limited to about 15 students.  Breakfast, lunch , and snacks are provided every day. Students will have a schedule filled with recreation, various activities, and scripture to help them develop skills for everyday life. Once a week, students will also participate in an off-site field trip, accompanied by the program leaders and trained chaperones.Transportation is available to and from the program for those who need it. Please contact Utica UMC by phone or email for more information.
