Hot off the Press

operation-purple-logoThe National Military Family Assocation offers Operation Purple camps, a free week of summer fun for military kids with parents who have been, are currently, or will be deployed.

These free week-long camps are provided through the generous support of Goldman Sachs Gives, the Sierra Club, and the Sierra Club Foundation.

The goal of the Operation Purple camp program is to give military children tools to help deal with the stresses that result from a parent's deployment, through a memorable camp experience in a "purple" environment.

Operation Purple camps are open to military children of all ranks and Services: active and reserve components—and give priority to children whose parents are deployed or deploying anytime between September 2010 and December 2011.

At Operation Purple camps, military children experience an exciting week of outdoor fun and adventure.
