(AFNS) — As mid-summer approaches, eligible Airmen and their families have the opportunity to use the PLAYpass Get Out and PLAY program to save hundreds of dollars with discounts in recreational and life skills classes.

PLAYpass cards, valued at more than $500, allow single Airmen returning from deployments, families of deployed Airmen and families of Airmen at dependent-restricted assignments to participate in Air Force Services activities such as trips, sports and child care at either a reduced cost or free of charge.

These passes provide both families of deployed members and single Airmen returning from deployment an amazing opportunity to take a break from some of the stressors of deployment, to just get out and have some fun +together as a family or with some friends.

Using the PLAYpass and going through the Outdoor Recreation Center, families are able to pay for a variety of things to include pool passes, swim lessons and youth programs, including instructional classes, seasonal sports and teen camps.

Bowling, golf, fitness center classes and child development programs, including Kids Adventure Night and drop-in care, are also available to families as a part of the PLAYpass program.

Since the Air Force program launched in 2011 and later expanded to include dependent-restricted assignments, more than 37,000 eligible members have participated in PLAYpass, said Linda Weston, an Air Force Services Agency marketing specialist.

The top activities used with the discount cards include youth programs, swimming pools, outdoor recreation, golf, bowling, and information, tickets and travel offices.  The PLAYpass program runs through Dec. 31.

For more information about the PLAYpass program, program eligibility, or how to obtain a PLAYpass card, visit www.MyAirForceLife.com or call the Nellis force support squadron, or visit the Nellis Force Support Squadron web, www.facebook.com/nellislife.
