Youth Programs

We have a terrific Youth Center with awesome programs and youth. We know you will have fun and make a lot of new friends while you are here. Davis-Monthan YP has sports, instructional classes, and programs to offer for ages 3-18. Our Open Recreation Program for ages 9-18 is affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club of America, 4-H, and National Alliance for Youth Sports, so the sky is the limit on what we offer. Please stop by the Youth Center for more information!

The Pre-Teen & Teen Center is an open recreation program for 9-18 year olds and offers a variety of club programming based on the Boys and Girls Club of America and 4H Curriculum. Our facility offers a safe place for pre-teens and teens to do their homework, study, and hang with friends!

We also provide an amazing School Age Program. School Age Care provides before and after school care for children who are currently enrolled in school, ages 5-12 years old. The program offers a wide range of growth and developmental activities to children that complement, rather than duplicate, the school day. You must be enrolled in this program to participate.

Drop-in care is offered on a space-available basis.

The Torch Club

The Torch Club is a nationally chartered Boys and Girls small group leadership and service club for youth ages 9-12. The Torch Club is a powerful vehicle through which club members can help meet the special character development needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their development. Torch Club members learn to elect officers and work together to implement activities in four areas: service to club and community, education, health and fitness, and social recreation. Through the guidance of caring adults who mentor and empower them, torch members develop the essential character traits of responsibility, respect for self and others, trustworthiness, fairness and caring. They also learn leadership skills that help them influence others in a positive way.
