On September 9, 2017 Aether will be hosting the 1st Annual Aether Games benefitting Aspen Youth Center and our free after-school and all day summer programs. Each day at AYC, kids play games while staff serve as refs. The tables are turning for this event, as AYC kids will referee and cheer lead the 1st Annual Aether Games.
