NS Norfolk - Youth Center


A mission essential program, the School Age Care program at Naval Station Norfolk is a facility-based program that provides child care services to school age children (children in full day kindergarten through grade seven) during the school year. SAC programs provide School Year Care, which includes before and after school care, and care during school out days (e.g., teacher training days) and school year vacations (e.g., winter break, spring break). SAC programs also provide Summer Camp. Field trips and special events are offered and free to all participants. Costs for care services are based on total family income. SAC Programs are all fully accredited with the Council on Accreditation (COA). Sign-up for Child Care Services at www.militarychildcare.com.

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!

Youth Sports

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.

Teen Program

The Naval Station Norfolk teen programs build character through every day 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. The teen program is available to youth ages 13 to 18 years of age. Pick-up takes place at various places in military housing. Time and days vary depending on what is scheduled. Please contact the Teen Coordinator directly at 757-444-8259 if you are interested in getting your child involved.
