Youth Center


The R.P. Lee Youth Center services the Peterson Complex, a military community that includes Peterson AFB, Cheyenne Mountain and Schriever AFB, giving military families a safe and secure environment for their children.

It offers a variety of programs: School Age Program, Youth Sports, Pre-Teen and Teen Programs, and Instructional Classes. These programs follow the guidelines set forth by the United States Air Force, the Boys and Girls Club of America, National 4-H, National After-School Alliance, National Association of Education of Young Children, and the National Youth Sports Coaches Association. Each program offers children the opportunity to participate in activities that are of interest to them and provide a positive learning experience.
