Rockdale Youth Academy has enjoyed the summer with several activities! We have grilled hot dogs and hamburgers followed by fresh cantaloupe, snow cones and ice cream pops. We even got a huge waterslide for the youth to enjoy and cool off. They stayed very active climbing up the ladder, and then sliding down the slide! Our youth also enjoyed movie nights and snacks inside where the air is cool. 

As the summer wraps up, some of our youth enjoyed ice cream sundaes at the Level Party hosted for those who were eligible.
