The Five Star Kids Academy, at the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads, will offer school-age care in a safe and reliable learning-focused environment. Our goal is to support both cognitive development and social-emotional growth with opportunities for enrichment and connection through steam-based learning activities, educational partnerships, virtual learning and homework support, daily physical activity, opportunities for creativity, engaging lessons that focus on character development, resilience, and more. Our program will operate full-day, school-age care until schools are operating Monday through Friday for face-to-face instruction.
We'll be here when you need us.
Frequent moves and deployments are one of the most impacting stressors of military families. Operation Little Learners offers a setting for children 18 months to 5 years old to make new friendships, build community, handle conflicts, develop children’s cognitive and social skills and encourage an overall healthier and resilient life. Parents and children work together and connect to a support network of other moms and dads experiencing the same military life challenges.
Operation Little Learners Virtual Sessions are happening now! Check out the OLL page for updates on monthly field trips and Craft & Conversation events.
Camps are a childhood tradition at the ASYMCA. From School Age Care to Summer Camp for military kids and Hampton Roads families, your school-age child will learn problem-solving skills with a variety of structured and unstructured, free-choice learning activities.
We offer camps in both the Spring and Summer, each offering a different theme to bring learning and excitement to your child's experience.
This year's Summer Camp theme is WHO'S YOUR HERO!
Operation Hero is "normally" a ten-week, no-cost, after-school enrichment program designed specifically for military kids. Using fun, engaging and interactive lessons, and activities, Operation Hero focuses on different topics each week to promote understanding, resiliency, and connection. Topics include; identity and self-esteem, respect, honesty, responsibility, and more.
Based on the current school conditions throughout the region, an eight-week virtual program has been adapted and new sessions begin FEBRUARY 1, 2021. DON'T MISS OUT!
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!
Here at the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads, we understand the importance of food insecurity and the impact it can have on our military families day to day life. Those who experience hunger on a regular basis especially school-age children face the risk of chronic illness, behavioral problems, anxiety, and aggression. So, with the assistance and generosity of our local sponsors, community, and volunteers the ASYMCA has programs and services to help put nourishment on the family table.
Family separation by frequent deployments bears a unique challenge to military spouses and children. The ASYMCA of HR facilitates Family Readiness Group (FRG) meetings that foster an environment of information sharing, family support, and opportunities for family members of deployed units to assist one another in overcoming domestic challenges associated with military deployments.
Our conference room accommodates 30 people and includes a Smart TV, Computer, Microwave, Small Fridge and Coffee Machine.
