Operation Purple Camps

What’s Operation Purple Camp, and why is it PURPLE? That’s a great question, we’re glad you asked! At OPC, we offer military kids a FREE WEEK of camp where they connect with other kids, just like them. And purple happens to be the perfect mix of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force Blue, Marine Corps Red, and Navy blue! In the military world, purple symbolizes all who serve, and at our Association, we know families serve, too!

At Operation Purple Camp, being a military kid ROCKS and we celebrate by bringing together kids from all ranks and services, including National Guard and Reserve components. They bond through a unique and memorable “purple” summer camp experience, which includes everything from kayaking and hiking to rock climbing, and zip lining. The only thing better than that? S’MORES!
