Youth Center - Scott Air Force BaseNew
The Youth Center is located directly across from Scott Elementary School in Patriots Landing housing. This 26,300 square foot facility has a broad range of programs for youth 5 to 18 years of age. For general members we offer a computer lab, gymnasium, rock climbing wall, game room, snack bar and “The Neighborhood”, a multi-purpose room that provides youth with the opportunity to engage in arts & craft activities, board games, leisurely reading, science adventure and much more. Youth Programs offer activities in the five core program areas: character & leadership development; the arts; youth sports, fitness, and recreation; health & life skills; and education & career development. “Power Hour”, a homework help and tutoring program, is offered during the school year Monday through Friday. Special clubs such as Torch Club, 4-H, and Keystone Club name a few of the opportunities that youth can become involved.
The Youth Center provides a year-round School Age Program which features a Before and After School Program during the school year and Summer Fun Program during summer break. Program hours are 0630 - 1800 Monday through Friday. Children in kindergarten, age 5 through 6th grade, 12 years of age are eligible for these programs and may attend for up to 10 hours per day. Each program is unique and provides different experiences for the participants.
The Before and After Program is offered in conjunction with the Mascoutah Public School calendar. USDA approved breakfast, lunch (when out of school) and snack are served daily. Some of the activities your child can look forward to include arts & crafts, bowling, cooking, sports & games, field trips, computers and special guest speakers.
The Youth Center Sports Program offers a wide range of team and individual sports for youth ages 5-18. All of our sports are recreational style and geared more toward skill development. All of our volunteer coaches are required to complete the NYSCA coaches’ certification course and have a completed background check before we will issue them a team.
