The Kadena Teen Center is a facility with a free-spirited atmosphere catered to teen only enjoyment. It is a great place for teens to hang out and develop skills that are either handy to have, or personal. We keep teens busy, and you can feel good knowing your teen is having fun in a safe and supervised environment.

We offer a variety of clubs, we go on unique and adventurous field trips, we teach countless classes, and teens can also have a great time at our events like dances and lock-ins.
