Los Angeles Air Force Base -- Beginning June 25, youth ages 4-1/2 to 12 have the opportunity to enjoy ten weeks of Summer Camp at the Youth Center in Fort MacArthur. From 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, camp participants will stay busy with educational, informative, enriching and just plain fun activities.
Bored they won't be. Not only are enjoyable fieldtrips planned each week, but the campers will be able to participate in activities such as art projects, science projects, team-building projects, swimming, writing, singing, community service and FitFactor/sports participation.
"Among the field trips we have planned are visits to the Mulligan's Family Fun Center, Mud Park in Huntington Beach, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum," said Summer Camp Coordinator Rebecca Burns.
"We'll be boogie-boarding at Seal Beach, kayaking at Mother's Beach and participating in the Missoula Children's Theater's production of "The Pied Piper."
Registration for Summer Camp is weekly. Children can participate for one week or the entire ten-week term. Costs are determined by family income. This School Age Care program is open to dependents of active duty military, DoD, active duty reservists or contract employees. Children aged 4-1/2 can participate only if they are starting K-5 this year.
Registration packages are available at the Youth Center located next to the Shoppette in Building #425. Additional information can also be obtained by calling the Youth Center at (310)653-8383.
