Kids sports all year long, swimming in the summer, and lots of activities to keep them busy. Kadena had a skate park too. Lots of local kid parks nearby the base too.

TOns of activities for the kids on base, sports, scouts, dance, gymnastics, theater, crafts. Off base is a children?「どィび「s wonderland. The Okinawan?「どィび「s love their kids and have some of the most elaborate parks I have ever seen. There are all the beaches, a huge aquarium, parks, museums, etc.
On and Off Medical Services Medical on Kadena is through the 18th Wing Medical Group. It has it?「どィび「s good and bad points. It can be hard to get an appoinment for some things. I haven?「どィび「t had any problems when I have had to go. I?「どィび「m pretty healthy so I have only had a few appoint ments. The hospital is Lester Naval Hospital and is just down the road from Kadena. THey have an excellent neo-natal unit that some of my friends have been involved with. I have only been to the hospital once for my mamogram.
