FREE Summer Camp for Children of Deployed Military

Operation Purple Camp is a completely free summer camp program for children of deployed military parents.

From their website:

"The stories from those who attended Operation Purple summer camps offer a glimpse of the heavy emotional and psychological burden that falls on the sons and daughters of service members. The goal of these free summer camps is to bring together youth who are experiencing some stage of a deployment and the stress that goes along with it."

In 2007, camps were available at 34 locations in 26 states as an outreach by the National Military Family Association.

Please share this information with any military families you might know with children who would benefit from this program.
