School Age Services (SAC)

Current Offerings: May - August 2024

School-age children can enroll in before and after school care, back up care for school holidays and school closing days, open recreation and full day summer camp programs for children kindergarten through fifth grade at DTA CDC. SAC provides children the opportunity to live and learn in a relaxed, “un-school like” setting in an effort to promote character values while reducing conflicts with parental responsibilities.  All SAC programs are centered on the Army’s Four Core Service Areas: 
  • Health, Fitness & Nutrition
  • Arts, Recreation and Leisure
  • Academic Support
  • Mentoring
SAC offers a relaxed, balanced program with time to play and learn with friends, finish homework in our homework lab, and let off steam in our multipurpose room. SAC recognizes the growing physical, intellectual, and social competence of school-age children. They want to make things, build things, act out new dramatic possibilities, explore technology in our tech lab, read a book, construct imaginary worlds with dolls or Legos® and, most importantly have some free choice.   SAC reinforces their drive to learn with new challenges and opportunities to get out into the world.
