YOUTH SUMMER CAMPS
NAS Oceana offers two fully developed recreation summer camps to accommodate eligible family members during summer break, mid-June to late August. Summer camps are open to eligible family members six to 12 years of age and five-year-olds that have graduated kindergarten and are going to the first grade. Camps offer a variety of age-appropriate activities that enhance cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Activities include Boy’s and Girl’s Club programming, 4-H programming, swimming, bowling, golf, field trips, and much more. As summer break approaches spaces will fill up quickly, so don’t wait to register!
The youth sports program teaches the value of exercise, healthy living, competition, team building, and group dynamics; signing up for youth sports is a great way to get your child involved. Kids have more fun when exercising with a group of friends or teammates. Studies show that children that receive the appropriate amount of exercise are not only healthier but also better able to focus on their schoolwork. Don’t let your child become a part of the American obesity epidemic. A healthy child is a happy child. The values learned from youth sports can benefit your child for a lifetime. The sports program at NAS Oceana includes soccer, flag football, basketball, cheerleading, and baseball. In 2015-2016 we look to expand this program to include a fitness facility designed for youth, ages 6-12, participating in our programs.
The NAS Oceana teen program builds character through everyday leadership and guidance in behavior and attitude. Young people of all backgrounds join together in wholesome recreation and companionship. Our professional staff provides positive adult mentors and role models to help teens succeed in school, stay healthy, learn important life skills, pursue interests in arts and sports, and explore vocational choices. Most importantly our teen program shows youngsters that someone cares and wants them to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
