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.

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.

Registration and Membership
Youth must have an AF Form 88 (Air Force Youth Programs Registration) on file to participate in Open Recreation. In accordance with AFI 134-144, 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 $120/year or $60/6 months per youth. In the event of closure due to quarantine, fees will not be refunded or prorated. Special needs situations (autism, ADHD, diabetes, etc.) require documented Child & Youth Participation Inclusion Action Team approval prior to attending.
