Youth & Teen Calendar View
We welcome youth & teens at BARN! Here’s a list, in chronological order.
**This event will be live streamed via Zoom.**
We’re taking Teen Nights @ BARN online this fall! Join other teens for an evening of connection and creativity, from your own home. Meet up with your friends or make new friends in breakout rooms with hands-on crafts, games, and conversations. You won’t need any special materials except typical things you have around the house!
BARN is excited to collaborate with other local organizations including BIMA, Kitsap Regional Library and Boys & Girls Club to offer this evening of activity! Pick from sessions such as Origami, Cut Paper Art, Drawing, Writing, or hang out and talk in the Books & Movies or ‘Q Corner’ (LGBTQ+) discussion rooms. At the beginning of the event, we’ll share details of the specific sessions and you will be able to select what activities you’d like to attend.
Register by 8pm on Thursday, October 15 to be entered into a drawing for some great raffle prizes, including Starbucks gift cards & YETI mugs! Must be present at the Teen Night to win. Prizes will be mailed after the event, so be sure to enter your mailing address in the registration process.

Do you want to learn computer programming, or are you looking for a place to practice and improve your coding skills? We invite you to join our online BARN Coders club on Thursday afternoons! If you’re new to coding, we’ll get you started with the Scratch programming language and support you in your learning process. This class is open to those unfamiliar with coding in Scratch, or those who are familiar with Scratch but want to join in the fun with others.
If you already know how to code, you’re welcome to come and work independently on your own projects, with experienced mentors on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot problems that arise. You’ll also get to learn from your peers and make new friends in the process! Parents, you are welcome to participate alongside your children. We look forward to seeing you and what you create in code!
Here is what you will need to have for the class:
1.) A dependable internet connection.
2.) A computer or tablet able to run Scratch in one of the following browsers:
Desktop Compatible Browsers
Note: The onlne version of Scratch is preferred, but you may also use an offline version which is accessible here - requirements are Windows10+, Android 6/0+, macOS 10.13+, and ChromeOS. FAQ about Scratch are found here.
Our team of mentors is made up of community members who collectively represent a vast range of experience in computing, engineering, robotics, and working with youth. They are all screened volunteers who are eager to get young people excited about programming!
