Non-Lame Things To Do With Teens In The Capital Region

shelter It’s not easy finding fun things to do with teens, and eliciting genuine enthusiasm often seems like an impossible dream.  As if it wasn’t hard enough to persuade one child, you usually have to convince at least two since most teenagers don’t want to go anywhere without a friend.

Sure, you can get them to go for the old standbys, movies and the mall, but sometimes you want them to try something new and maybe get a little exercise too.
