Operation Purple Camp For Children Of Deployed Military Members

Each summer, the National Military Family Association offers summer camps to children of deployed military members free of charge through its Operation Purple program.

The goal of these camps is to impart the message to our nation’s youngest heroes that “Kids Serve Too.”

Camps are open to military children of all ranks and services: active and reserve components.

The program helps military kids experience carefree fun while learning coping skills to deal with war-related stress and fostering relationships with other kids in similar situations.

The 2010 traditional Operation Purple camp applications are now available. The application period closes on April 16.
