Details on Month of the Military Child Celebration

Child, Youth and School Services will host the annual Month of the Military Child Celebration from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Thunder Mountain Activity Center.

Army-wide, April is the “Month of the Military Child” and all military children are spotlighted and honored for the challenges they endure in order for their parents to serve our country. Military children are “Proud, Ready, and Resilient,” which is the theme for this year’s event. Through transition, deployments and times of adversity, military children work hard to maintain normalcy and strive for success.

Saturday’s event is free and includes activities, games, displays and a BBQ-style lunch. Fort Huachuca’s CYS Services will be providing craft projects, jewelry making and other activities that will allow children to use their creativity and imagination.

Throughout the day, there will be dance performances, piano recitals, and gymnastics and martial arts demonstrations from a number of our SKIESUnlimited Classes. A big hit that will be returning from last year-the Bubble Gum Bubble Blowing Contest.

Barney’s Backyard Barnyard will be providing a petting zoo where children can feed and pet bunnies, pigs, a calf, and other farm animals, as well as horses from our Buffalo Corral. Outdoor activities like paintball and mountain biking will be provided by FMWR Rents. Appearances will also be made by the Amazing Spiderman and Captain America. There will be informational tables staffed by organizations such as First Things First, Navy Federal Credit Union, USAA and Grand Canyon University.

Representatives from Fort Huachuca’s Emergency Services will be present to teach children about safety and demonstrate the various equipment they use and the canine handlers from the 483rd Military Work Dog Detachment will be demonstrating their dogs’ skills.

The 111th Military Intelligence Battalion and the 11th Signal Battalion will have static displays outside TMAC to provide children with an idea of the equipment used by the Soldiers. These static displays offer insight into what equipment is used to facilitate communication and keep Soldiers safe in hazardous environments.

Finally, six bikes and helmets will be given away as door prizes during this event. The drawing will be held after lunch and you must be present to win.
