Please see below for more information on upcoming events for Military Families:


Over the last 12 years, Camp Corral has served more than 30,000 military-connected children from across the country. Their one-of-a-kind program is tailored to address the most common needs and concerns of military children to include finding peer connections, creating support systems, building confidence, and learning coping skills. Children who participate in their programs experience adventure, test their limits, challenge their fears, celebrate their accomplishments, and make life affirming friendships that assure them they are not alone. Camp Corral is open to children ages 8-15 who have a guardian that is a wounded, ill or injured military/veteran. This is a one-week summer camp that is NO COST to the families.



Now is the time for graduating high school seniors to apply for scholarships! To help with your search, attached is a PDF titled “List of Military Scholarships” packed with opportunities. Best of luck!
