CAMP CORRAL REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR 2018 SUMMER CAMPS
Camp Corral expands the number of camps it will offer to military kids
Camp Corral (www.campcorral.org), Camp Corral is a free, one-of-a-kind summer camp for children of wounded, ill, injured, or fallen military service members. Although any child from a military family is eligible, registration priority is given to children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members.
The vision behind Camp Corral is one where kids, ages 8 to 15, are free to be kids, far away from the day-to-day challenges they face as children of military service members. The reality of a parent being deployed away from home for over a year is the norm for all children from military families.
And for 87 percent of Camp Corral's campers, a parent coming back injured, disabled or never coming back is their reality. Providing positive, recreational experiences in the outdoors helps foster resilience, and Camp Corral has proven to be a ‘week of a lifetime,’ providing kids non-stop fun with activities like canoeing, swimming, fishing, arts and crafts, ropes course challenge, archery, horseback riding and other camp and outdoors activities.
The week also encourages the campers to create friendships and bond with other kids who share similar family situations. Camp Corral, headquartered in Raleigh, N.C., partners with camps nationwide who demonstrate excellence in both youth-development and safety. Each host camp has been carefully selected to provide campers with a caring, nurturing and safe environment – one in which each camper can thrive.
All Camp Corral host camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, or operate under its standards. In the coming years, Camp Corral is committed to increasing the number of children served by expanding its reach in communities around the country through meaningful camp experiences, always free of charge. The only cost required of the families is the transportation cost to and from the camp.
To apply for registration and to view the complete list of camps and dates, military families can visit www.campcorral.org or call 1-855-605-1267.
