Operation Kids Camp Mission:
Connecting youth from military & first responder families, while developing 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication and social skills. Each child will return home with a greater understanding of themselves, more confidence and improved self reliance skills.
“Being around other kids that have a mom or dad in the military is just awesome, and there are so many things to do here that I can’t do at home...like archery, canoeing and campfires”.
-Jared, age 10
