School Age Center
- We're Not Any After School Program. We're SAC!
We are happy to welcome you and your child into our School Age Centers (SAC). It is the mission of Fort Campbell SAC to promote quality of life by supporting Army readiness. SAC provides affordable before-school and after-school care in a quality program that meets the needs of youth and parents. In addition to before and after school care, separate SAC camps are operated during Winter and Spring breaks. During the summer months, SAC operates a full day camp. Fort Campbell SAC is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA). This accreditation assures parents of a commitment to responsive and loving care, trained and competent staff, a safe and healthy environment, and consistent program improvement and quality.

- About SAC
Fort Campbell SAC is a Boys & Girls Club and 4-H Club program. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America promote positive youth development through the provision of opportunities for young people to develop the skills they will need to become successful and contributing members of their communities. A variety of club-based programs are offered at all the SAC sites in four service areas: Sports & Fitness, Fine Arts, Citizenship & Leadership, and Leisure & Recreation.
A major club program offered during the school year is our Academic Power Hour - this is an after school club that allows youth to work on homework assignments with qualified staff to assist them and the opportunity to engage in other higher learning activities to make learning fun! As a 4-H Club, SAC provides informal, hands-on educational experiences that guide children and youth to become responsible and productive citizens in their communities. The 4-H Clubs offered are Citizenship Club, Technology Club, the Photography Club, and the Fine Arts Club. All children will be required to follow the SAC Bully Policy .
