The Fort Bragg Armed Services YMCA is on a mission to provide support to service members and their families through educational, recreational, and social programs. Our family support services include childcare, mentoring, infant support, and the giving of household goods or financial support for lower enlisted families in need.
Our Before and After Care programs are designed to meet the needs of working parents by providing school-aged children safe care in a positive environment. Children are given the opportunity to complete homework, receive tutoring, and explore other interests and hobbies after school. In a values-centric environment, they also build friendships and refine social skills. This program is generously supported by Tyson Foods.
The ASYMCA’s Operation Little Learners education program provides a much-needed platform to help support and build confidence in parents in their roles as their child's first teacher. The program guides and gives tools to parents on how to enhance the developmental areas of the child and offers an opportunity for early learning and bonding. The classes provide a variety of activities which enhance cognitive, emotional, social, motor and other skills of children generally reaching children ages 2-5 years old.
Registration for the 2019-20 Session will begin this fall!
ASYMCA Summer Camp offers children positive developmental experiences and encourages them to forge bonds with each other and with staff, building confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age. Children experience a sense of achievement through opportunities in the outdoors and are welcomed to a physically and emotionally safe and stimulating environment. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. We will incorporate these experiences in our day-to-day activities.
Operation Hero is a program provided to military school-age children. Operation Hero is designed to address challenges faced by many military children (feelings of isolation, feelings of self-doubt, frequent or long-term deployments by one or both parents and academic difficulties due to frequent moves). This program promotes social responsibility through team-building activities and targets children in grades second through eighth grade. The dedicated Mentor takes the time to interact with the children on a one-on-one basis as well as in a group setting.
This program is generously supported by The Youth Grove Stock Trust.
Registration for Operation Hero will begin this fall!
At the Fort Bragg Armed Services YMCA, we deeply and selflessly care for our troops and ensure their needs are met-because they do the same for us. Thanks to the generosity of individual donors and businesses, we are able to assist lower enlisted service members and their families. The Armed Services YMCA office may have household goods and other resources on hand to fulfill a legitimate need in support of a service member’s mental, physical or spiritual wellness. Call 910-436-0500 for more information about soldier support opportunities.
Operation Kid Comfort is offered through the Fort Bragg branch for any service member stationed in North or South Carolina only. This program provides children of deployed service members a quilt or pillow with pictures of the deployed service member and the family. This program is designed to comfort and help children during the deployment. We have wonderful volunteer quilters who sew these quilts and pillows.
