Youth Programs supports dependents of active duty military, retired military, active reservists, DoD personnel, and Tierra Vista Residents. Youth Programs offers a variety of programs, services, and age appropriate activities, classes, trips, and events for youth ages 5-18 years. Youth Programs affiliates with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and 4-H to offer the following programs: School Age Care, Open Recreation and Teen Programs.
Ages 5 to 12 years
The School-Age Program is certified by the Department of Defense and is accredited by the National AfterSchool Association (NAA). It provides before and after school care and summer camp programming to 5-year-olds in kindergarten to 12-year-olds. Fees for care are based on total family income and guidance from the Department of Defense. There is currently no waiting list for care in the School Age Program. Inbound families may place their children on the waiting list by faxing a completed DD2606 and a copy of the sponsor’s orders to the program at DSN 633-8384 or commercial 310-653-8384 prior to arrival.
Ages 9 to 18 years
Open Recreation offers many BGCA and 4-H Programs for 9 to 12-year-olds and Teen Programs for 13 to 18-year-olds. An annual membership fee of $25 is required to participate in both programs and entitles the member to use of the facility for self-directed recreation and discounted attendance of field trips, dances, other scheduled events. Youth and teens are strongly encouraged to join in on the opportunity to lead their peers by joining either the Torch Club or Keystone Club. $30 per week.
Ages 9 to 18 years
Youth Program members are eligible for transportation to and from select schools: Leland Elementary, Point Fermin Elementary, White Point Elementary, Dana Middle School, and Port of Los Angeles High School. Upon return, registered youth may enjoy our Open Recreation Program, or go directly home. $50 per week.
Participation in the transportation program does not automatically register youth for after school activities. Youth must be enrolled in Open Recreation and other programming separately.
