Fun with MWR

Fall into Fun

Sun’s out. School’s done. Get ready for some summer fun!

Make it a summer to remember with Army MWR! Outside-types: look into the pools, camping, outdoor recreation, and travel options. We’ve got ways to escape the heat, too, like libraries, Esports, and bowling. Lots more options for everyone, whether you’re a single Soldier or a Family with kids.

The choices with MWR are endless!

Aquatics/Pools - Take a dip, swim some laps, or lounge poolside at an Magrath Sports Complex Pool.

Library - Take a course, read an online magazine or book, or participate in a virtual event – without even going to the library. 

Summer Reading Program - Get lost in a book AND win great prizes with the MWR Library Summer Reading Program. 

Outdoor Recreation - Outdoor Recreation lets you get out and enjoy nature without spending a fortune. Take a trip or go on an adventure with us this summer!

Campgrounds/Recreational Lodging - Camp or stay in your RV at an MWR campground for a safe, thrifty, and fun way to experience the world. 

Equipment Rental - Rent first-rate gear from Outdoor Recreation for your next adventure – without the hassle of buying or storing it. 

BOSS - Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers (BOSS) provides single Soldiers chances for fun, service, and leadership.  

Esports – Soldier Showdown V - Compete for prizes and bragging rights in Apex Legends, Fortnite, and Call of Duty: Warzone during the Soldier Showdown V.

Travel - Get away from it all – literally – by researching and arranging your next trip through American Forces Travel, or by staying at Army Lodging or Armed Forces Recreation Centers worldwide.  

Bowling - Head over to the Pine Plains Bowling Center for competition and fun on the lanes – with all the equipment and snacks you need.

Sports, Fitness – garrison sporting events (e.g. runs, weightlifting, etc) Ready to compete…or just have a great time? Join your fellow athletes in various sporting events that challenge every kind of fitness – running, weightlifting, and more.
