Middle School and Teens

If you love dances, lock-ins, making new friends, water parks, movies, and music, the Middle School Program is just what you've been looking for. Fort Campbell provides recreational and educational programs for Middle School youth in 6th - 8th grade. The activities within the programs are fun, diverse, and, youth-driven. The goal of this program is to provide youth with many wide-ranging recreational, social, leadership and volunteer opportunities that will ultimately prevent at-risk behavior during the transition from childhood to young adulthood.

The Teen Program offers activities planned by teens, for teens. Activities offered include: social activities, volunteer opportunities, job preparation and referral, and community service opportunities. We are affiliated with The Boys & Girls Club of America, 4-H Club, and Character Counts.

The Teen program at Fort Campbell strives to provide the challenges, experiences, and support to help teens develop to their fullest potential.  Youth development programs exist to promote positive, healthy, development of teens. To maximize youth developmental efforts, teen programs target four service areas - life skills and leadership opportunities, mentoring and intervention and support services, leisure and recreation activities, as well as health and fitness.
