School Age Youth and Teens
The Youth Center of Kings Bay offers a variety of leisure programs for youth and teen, kindergartners through 18 years of age. Among the various programs offered are:
- School Age Care (SAC)
- Day Camp

Active duty, DoD employees, reservists and contract employees at the base are eligible for this program. At the Youth Center, our aim is to build character through everyday leadership and guidance in behavior and attitude. Young people of all backgrounds join together in wholesome recreation and companionship. Trained staff provide positive adult mentors and role models.
Nationally recognized programs help young people succeed in school, stay healthy, learn important life skills, pursue interests in the arts and sports, and explore vocational choices. We have thirteen computers with DSL Internet access for the youth to use. Most importantly, our program shows youngsters that someone cares and wants them to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
