Joint Base Andrews Youth Programs offers a well-rounded wide range of activities in sports, instructional classes, social programs, before & after school care and summer day camp programs for youth and teens. The facility encompasses five classrooms, a S.T.E.A.M. COI (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Arts & Math Center of Innovation), two computer labs, dance studio, movie theater, concessions, table games, dedicated space for teens, a lounge, an indoor gymnasium and outdoor basketball court.


The center is open to eligible youth year round, except for AFDW Family Days & Federal Holidays. The annual membership fee for open recreation is $120 (Jan-Dec) for youth/teens ages 6-18 years. Fee-based instructional classes include dance, taekwondo, gymnastics and piano.  Team sports in basketball, softball, baseball; soccer, cheerleading, and flag football are also offered for a fee based on age and member/non-member status. 

We are affiliated with Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) and 4-H and offer a wide variety of their programs daily, weekly and monthly.  Through these organizations and Air Force Youth Programs we strive to make an impact by promoting youth development life skills, healthy lifestyles, academic success and good character and leadership.  Parents are always encouraged to become involved in our program as volunteers to help us meet and exceed our goals.

All Youth Programs are drug, tobacco, and alcohol free.
