A free lunch is also available to all our campers, thanks to the Milford Summer Food Service Program!  Camp will be $140/week for Milford Residents, $150/week for non-Milford Residents, or $50 per day to attend.

Almost Time for Back to School! 

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer and excited to start a new school year! The Center will be opening its after-school program on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 30, 2017. For updated registration forms please click here

The first and second day of school, kids will be welcomed in and can also pick up registration forms then.  Starting Tuesday September 5 th , any child coming to the after-school program must be registered or they will not be able to stay! So get your registration forms in the earlier the better! After turning in a registration form, the after-school member will be issued a key tag. If the child has been here for the previous school year, they use the same key tag.  Replacement key tags can be purchased for $1.  The key tag will be used to sign in and out daily and for us to track attendance. Our calendar for September will be available soon!
The Milford Youth Center has become the focal point for the children of Milford. It hosts many different activities and events throughout the year for the youth! The Milford Youth Center's after school program is open for youth ages 8-18, free of charge, from 2-6 pm Monday through Friday (check monthly calendar for any changes). All members must be a Milford resident or attend Milford Schools. All Youth members must be picked up by time of closing (unless they walk home). Pick up is outside of the building on 24 Pearl St.  There may be additional permission forms to participate, due to some programs being held off site (Transportation is not provided). The game room, gymnasium and lounge, will be opened daily. 
Volunteers are always welcome to assist with the after-school program or during the morning hours! We are always looking for help during the after-school hours, 2-6 PM. You may also run a program/activity during the after-school program.  We also need volunteers for our monthly evening events. Please  contact us if you would like to volunteer.

Milford Youth Center (MYC) mission  is to provide a safe environment that promotes self esteem, builds character, and fosters the notion of community and the importance of respecting and serving others. For more information, click here .

The  MYC  works together with other community organizations to provide resources and opportunities for youth to make healthy decisions. The MYC works to provide local youth with the necessary activities and events that help them develop physically, mentally, socially and emotionally through their childhood years. By providing Milford youth with these types of programs and a safe environment during the after school hours and during our monthly events, we hope to address adolescent risk factors as well as promoting the partnership among community members to ensure a comprehensive vision and plan for the health of the youth in the town of Milford.
