The Youth Centers at Ramstein and Vogelweh are the main hubs for a wide range of programs and events for youth and families. Instructional class registration, seasonal sports registration, and open recreation for youth ages 9-12 years old are operated from these main centers. Satellite facilities and athletic fields support school-age care, instructional classes, and teen programs.
Pre-teen programming is offered in the main centers primarily after school during the school year and weekday afternoons during spring, winter, and summer breaks. The five core program areas are leadership and service, the arts, health and wellness, sports and recreation, and education. In addition to weekly activities planned within the five core areas, the centers offer other events and opportunities through their affiliation with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and 4-H. These include BGCA Youth of the Year, Keystone and Torch, and the National 4-H Youth Science day. During the winter, spring, and summer breaks, the Youth Centers also offer camps and trips.
Participation in open recreation requires membership. Registration for sports, instructional classes, and special events does not require membership; however, members have a priority registration period and member discounts are applied to fees.
Annual base-wide events hosted or co-hosted by Youth Programs staff include Cardboard Drive-In Movie, Month of the Military Child Carnival, America’s Kids’ Run, Lights-On After School celebration, Fall Fest, and Month of the Military Family recognition.
