picnic time!

“Picnictime” is one of your favorite memories as you look back over the years at Graham Air Base. The annual event is often two-days long and you bring your entire family for “a fun-raisin’ and barbecue on the grounds!” Games, bands, songs, air shows, talent shows, ponies, choo-choos--and the 500 students you train or assist as your honor guests.

facilities for fun, one dozen clubs welcome you!


A four-lane accredited alley is one of GAB’s favorite fun spots. Free lessons.


Sun, swimming, shower facilities--at no cost to you and your family.


Let Junior romp, slide, swing inside the fenced, shaded play ground near the pod.


Scout hut serves children of employees living on base or nearby.


Your children can be cared for at the base nursery, open during all major events.


One of the AF’s finest nine-hole courses winds through the north areas of GAB. 


Plan a party--use the base’s “family size” (100 steaks or so) barbecue pit and picnic tables.


Join a team--leagues fill GAB’s lighted diamond almost every night of The Season.


Work out in the base gym--play badminton or basketball on non- student-scheduled nights.


Two courts beckon you, next door to the pool--for a cool-off after the second set.


Want to vacation on exclusive Golden Beach… in a completely furnished Spanish style mansion… free maid-service... the ocean in your backyard… Miami a shell’s throw away? Sign up now! The “Boss’ home” is available at no cost to you and your entire family.
