If you would like to enroll your child in weekly camps, please request care on the www.MilitaryChildCare.com website.
CFAC Child & Youth Programs provide targeted teen programs based off of interests and trends that may include lock-ins, field trips, and recreational activities. The Teen Room is located within the CYP building and accessible to teens on “School Day Outs” and School Breaks during marketed operational hours. The majority of the recreational activities are FREE and activities that require a fee more often apply to trips and teen lock-ins
