Beginning in April, Navy Installations Command will extend Child Youth Center and MWR Fitness Center hours of operation in several locations as part of a pilot program. The three locations selected to support the pilot include Naval Base in Bremerton, Wash., Joint Expeditionary Base in Little Creek, Va., and Naval Station in San Diego, Calif. The locations were chosen for the pilot because of their proximity in fleet concentration areas where work requirements extend beyond a normal work day. The pilot program will measure usage and staffing levels required to support the extended hours, and determine whether the expanded hours can be affordably extended to other facilities across the Navy.
