Sports and activites for Kids: Teens and Tweens

Good afternoon! Hope everyone's new year is starting off well! We have been silent readers of this very informational forum and we are now hoping to get some suggestions to help our daughter. We have a 12 year old who was very active in soccer back in the states. With teammates and schoolmates came sleep overs and time spent with friends. Unfortunately, she has not had the opportunity to make friends here just yet. She is homeschooled as she must travel back to the states quite often so that limits her contact with peers her age. We have done the canoe thing, the snorkel thing and the beach thing. Still, as with us, it is hard to drum up conversation to find that most people are just vacationing and not residents.

So to all those wise and experienced folks of STX, where is a safe and fun environment I can take my 12 year old to meet her next BFF?

Thank you for your responses and may you all have a blessed and fortunate new year!
