Youth Center NAVSTA Norfolk
YOUTH SUMMER CAMPS
Naval Station Norfolk offers a fully developed recreation summer camp 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.
