Beating Summer Boredom for Teens & Tweens in Lansdale, Fort Washington & Beyond

School’s almost out, and that means it’s time for some summer fun! If you’ve got teens or tweens at home, you’re probably already hearing the familiar “I’m bored” refrain. Never fear — we’ve assembled an awesome lineup of activities, whether you’re in Lansdale, Ambler, North Wales, Souderton, Oaks, or even Doylestown PA. After all, we’re not just remodeling basements and kitchens in this area — we live here, too!

Here are our top picks for summer adventures — just remember to check availability with each organization.

Get Outdoors & Get Active

Take advantage of the beautiful weather and hit the trails. We love Evansburg State Park and Fort Washington State Park but check out for advice on which trails to hit (or avoid!)

 We’re also fans of Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, where you can go ziplining or gem mining for an all-ages outdoorsy adventure.

Don’t forget gyms! The Ambler Area YMCA and Lifetime Fort Washington offer swimming, sports, fitness classes, and camps to keep teens active.

For a bigger adrenaline rush, check out the HUGE aerial adventure park at Hellerick’s Family Farm


Embrace Arts & Culture

Get your teens’ creative juices flowing with music lessons at Ambler Arts & Music Academy or the Color Me Mine painting studio in Montgomeryville. You can also catch live music, shows and performances at local venues like the Ambler Theater or Act II Playhouse.

Experience Community Events

Our area hosts tons of fun community festivals and events all summer. In Lansdale, don’t miss the Founders Day celebration, First Fridays, and summer concert series. Over in Souderton, check out the kid-friendly events listed on Eventbrite like arts & crafts, magic shows, and more.

Enjoy College Prep

The summers before high school are the perfect time for college prep. Penn State Abington offers a Kids and Teen College with camps covering everything from forensics to public speaking to graphic novels — a great way for tweens and teens to get a taste of college life.



With so many awesome options for outdoor recreation, arts and culture, community events, college prep, and family attractions, your teens and tweens won’t have a moment of boredom this summer!
