Youth Supervision

Fairchild Air Force Base's youth supervision policy applies if one lives on base or brings their child to the base.   Note that WA State doesn't have published guidance. Off-base residents are encouraged to utilize this chart as a good guide, keeping their individual child's maturity/growth/temperament in mind.

On-base Youth Supervision Policy chart

The ages specified are the maximum ages and are based on the child’s ability to demonstrate age-appropriate behavior. Children who do not consistently demonstrate age-appropriate behavior should not be given the same degree of self-management responsibilities. Parents must use good judgment and consider the physical, emotional, and psychological maturity of their child when determining the level of supervision required.

**Adult supervision is defined as someone who has or assumes responsibility for the child, e.g., parent, guardian, care-provider, or friend.
