NAS JRB Teen Center
Youth and School Age Care Programs offer before- and after-school programs for children from kindergarten to 12 years of age during the school year, and full-day care during school holidays and summer camps. Teen programs and a variety of youth sports are offered for youths 13 to 18 years of age (18 if still in school). Navy Youth Programs have partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to provide core programs that build character through everyday leadership and guidance in behavior and attitude. The trained CYP professionals are positive adult mentors and role models, encouraging children to reach their full potential as responsible, productive citizens.
School Age Care (SAC) is offered in Building 561 and is combined with the Youth Center on NAS JRB near Belle Chasse Academy. SAC hours are 6 to 8 a.m. and 3 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Holiday and summer camp hours are 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Youth sports and cheerleading are offered throughout the year.
The teen center at NAS JRB is open 3 to 8 p.m. Friday for youths 13 to 18 years old, with occasional open recreation activities.

They are also closed for Mardi Gras and any other day sanctioned by the NAS JRB commanding officer.
