Fall programs at Trackside

The new school year is upon us and Trackside is ready to help make it a great year for teens in Wilton. The teen center is here to provide a variety of opportunities for students to enjoy their free time in a safe, healthy, and fun environment. Students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to make Trackside their home away from home while they participate in clubs, join one or more of our new classes, attend our special Friday night events, or use our facilities to unwind at the end of the day.
During our drop-in hours, students are invited to hang out at Trackside to play games, watch movies, study in our conference room, and grab a snack at the Snackside Café. Drop-in hours are from 3 to 6 on Mondays through Thursdays and 3 to 7 on Fridays. Whether you’re hanging out with friends or flying solo, Trackside has something for you.
Our new classes and workshops are available for all students in grades 6 through 12 looking for unique opportunities to learn fun new skills.
