During the summer months The PORT goes out and about as TEEN TREKS. Every weekday we head outdoors and do it all – from the beach to sailing to canoeing and all the waterparks. Teens in 6th grade and up are invited to sign up for a week or the whole summer. Call 865 6171 to reserve your spot.

The PORT, located in the basement of Freeport Community Services (53 Depot St, Freeport) is a youth-driven teen center which provides a safe, enriching, and dynamic
atmosphere for area teenagers. We provide a place in which teens can explore new ideas, new skills, and new friendships. The PORT strives to provide a hip, chem-free alternative in the social life of teenagers, and offers educational opportunities to expand their intellectual, emotional, and physical lives.
The PORT Teen Center will be a constant presence in the lives of teens in the Freeport, Pownal, and Durham communities. Through dedication and focused commitment, we aim to build a strong and successful organization which strives to nurture and enrich the lives of teens. The PORT will be a partner with the greater community. Through strong partnerships, we will achieve outstanding service and foster an atmosphere of trust, sharing, and innovation to best serve youth in our community. The PORT will be a leader in providing creative activities and valuable opportunities to help improve the quality and direction of our patrons’ lives. The PORT will be a friend to youth and become a valued part of each person’s life. Teens are the core of our organization and we exist to play a relevant and useful role in their lives. The PORT will be a supporter of the dreams and aspirations of our patrons. Working together, we will contribute in a positive manner to the teen culture of our community, strive to create a bridge between the teenagers and the greater community, and celebrate that which is unique about the adolescent years.
The PORT Teen Center also has an outing club, The PORT Outdoors. It is open to all Freeport High School students. We typically do 2 – 3 overnight trips per year along with several day trips. Look for information at the High School regarding Outing Club trips. Check out The PORT Outdoors video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gdn5sO3Vew
