February vacation got you down? Head for higher ground

NEWTON

Teens who want to learn comedy, do snow sports, and visit New York City during February vacation can sign up for the Newton Community Service Center’s Higher Ground Program.

Starting Feb. 19, youth in grades 7 through 10 can join friends for a week that begins with winter sports at a ski resort and ends with a winter team challenge led by the Appalachian Mountain Club. In between, teens will practice getting laughs at a Boston comedy club and travel to the Big Apple for a tour of MTV Studios, including seats at the show TRL (“Total Request Live”).

The weeklong program, planned and supervised by service center staff, costs $450, not including meals, except Friday lunch. Early reservations are encouraged, visit NCSC online or call 617-244-1404.
