Open Recreation

Open Recreation (Ages 9-18)

Youth Programs Open Recreation is designed to provide safe, age-appropriate activities that help youth develop strength and confidence and provide a healthy and sound environment. Programs such as youth development or leadership development through club organizations, health education, youth/parent activities, youth sponsorship programs, and relocation assistance are available. Being affiliated with the Boys & Girls clubs of America and 4-H, we have incorporated many of their programs, such as the Power Hour, Keystone Club, Torch Club, Smart Girls and Air Force Specialty camps (Space Camp, Teen Aviation Camp, 4-H Teen Adventure Camp, Regional STEM Camps and Missoula Children’s Theater). Youth Programs uses these clubs to provide community service in conjunction with monthly activities.

Eligibility

Youth ages 9-18 years old of Active Duty Members, Reserves, retired military and DoD Civilians who have access to base privileges. Youth 6-8 years old are allowed to participate only when they are in an activity that involves continuous direct supervision by an adult or they are accompanied by a parent. Youth that are 18 years old must still be in high school. Married and active duty youth are not allowed to participate as youth participants.

In accordance with AFI 134-144 11.5.3.2, immunizations to include a flu shot must be submitted at time of registration and updated annually. Open Recreation is a privilege, not a right. The annual fee is $60 per youth and we don’t prorate. All memberships expire the next year on the same day. Youth may also purchase a day pass for $2 per day.
