Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration is pleased to announce the reopening of the Department of Youth Affairs’ (DYA) resource centers. Effective June 1, 2022, DYA is resuming resource center operations in Dededo, Mangilao, and Hågat. Each center also will operate two-week-long summer camps for up to 40 students, ages 5 to 17, per center.
“This week marks the start of summer for many students, so we are proud to safely welcome them back to our resource centers for enriching summer activities,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “We highly encourage families to take advantage of our summer camps, which are available free of charge and offer fun, educational activities including arts and crafts, physical fitness and sports, field trips, and mentorship guidance.”
“It is through the careful efforts of our people that we have been able to cautiously reopen our island over the past month,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “To date, we have celebrated the reopening of the CHamoru Village Wednesday Night Market, islandwide senior citizen centers, and several village festivals and community events. We are further encouraged by the return of our DYA resource centers, which will provide exciting opportunities for Guam’s young people.”
Registration forms are available at dya.guam.gov beginning on May 31, 2022. Completed forms must be submitted in-person by 5 p.m. on June 3, 2022, to the resource center your child will be attending. More information on the individual DYA summer camps is listed below.
