SCHOOL AGE CARE PROGRAM
The School Age Care Program is available for dependents of military and DoD personnel for children kindergarten through 12 years of age. Trained counselors help children with homework, arts and crafts, nature, and other activities. All counselors have experience in childhood education and are CPR and First Aid Certified.
Did you know that military children relocate every 1-4 years, three times more often than their civilian peers? The Anchored4Life Club is designed to provide military children with transition and resiliency life skills. This helps build positive connections, reinforces team building, and provides opportunities to support transitioning youth by giving kits and co-leading location tours and activity groups.
