Family Crisis Center hosting teen camp in Nacogdoches

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - For the first time ever The Family Crisis Center of East Texas and the Nacogdoches Recreation Center have partnered together to host a workshop for teenagers this summer.

The workshop is free and will teach teens how to have healthy relationships with their peers, teachers and families.

"The camp will include a free lunch, snacks, candy and chances to win prizes. Games, activities, and fun are also free and included," said Primary Prevention Coordinator Joyce Pitts.

A registration form and parent survey are needed for participants that can be filled out on or before the first day of camp.

This registration and survey will be available to parents next week at the Nacogdoches Recreation Center and online at

"The camp will teach important life skills, challenge teens to reflect on their relationship standards, and how they treat others. We will be defining the characteristics of healthy relationships and describing what healthy relationships truly look like," Pitts said. "We will also be looking at how the media and society can create unhealthy and unrealistic expectations; and how these expectations can cause conflict in our relationships with others and within ourselves.

The healthy relationship teen camp is open to all teenagers ages 13 to 18 at The Nacogdoches Recreation Center won July 29, 30, 31 from 11:30am to 2:30pm.
