15 February 2024 by

Great news for Military Kiddos, the National Military Family Association has announced the 2024 Operation Purple Camp locations for 2024!  Applications are NOW OPEN!

Since 2004, Operation Purple Camp has served over 64,000 Military Kids.  Operation Purple Camp is a free week long camp available to military children from all military branches.  Operation Purple Camp's mission is to help alleviate the stresses of military life and connect with kids just like them.  It's a great opportunity.  Below are the announced locations of the 2024 camp season.  

While at an Operation Purple Camp your child will enjoy an array of camp experiences such as arts, crafts, ropes courses, canoeing, swimming, archery, and climbing walls.  The campers will be supported by fully trained counselors and camp staff experienced in helping children adapt and overcome the stressors of military life.

By meeting kids like them, campers make life-long friends who understand what it’s like for a parent to serve in the military. Campers are encouraged to celebrate the sacrifices they make and be proud of their role as a military kid!


Children of active-duty service members and veterans, from all uniformed services, including the National Guard, Reserve, Space Force, the Commissioned Corps of the United States Public Health Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration may apply.
