We just got back from a successful camp training weekend. We have such an amazing group of people for staff this year- we are so excited to kick off summer.
Camp will be starting next week, June 20, 2011 and we'll be kicking it off with operation purple. Operation purple is the military family association camp. Children whose parents have recently been deployed or who have returned can attend this camp. We are very honored to have been selected to host such a camp.
Our goal is to give children the tools necessary to cope with deployment. Throughout this camp, kids connect with other children, and come to learn that they too, are undergoing similar changes. The memories and friendships made at camp last a lifetime as well as the skills.
Our goal is to help build caring, confident youth and future leaders. As part of our mission, we encourage children to learn new skills and to lead projects while at camp.
