Operation Purple Camps
The National Military Family Association is now accepting applications for its popular Operation Purple Summer Camps. This free summer camp program was developed by the Association to support military children, ages 7-17, dealing with the stress of war.
In this ninth summer of the program, 1400 children will attend an Operation Purple camp at one of the 16 locations in 14 states: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, North Carolina, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.
The North Carolina camp will be held Sunday, July 8, 2012 to Friday, July 13, 2012 in Hendersonville for ages 7-17. For more information and to submit your application online, visit http://militaryfamily.org.
If you are interested, please apply promptly, camps fill up very quickly.
Priority will be given to families with children who meet the deployment criteria and have never attended an Operation Purple camp.
