Operation Purple Healing Adventures celebrates rediscovering family-fun and togetherness after an injury. This FREE three-day experience combines family-focused activities with outdoor exploration, like hiking and canoeing to encourage each family’s growth on their new journey post-injury. Our Association welcomes wounded, ill, injured, medically separated, or medically retired military families to reconnect at Healing Adventures. Families take part in uniquely designed resiliency building activities developed by the American Red Cross, and build memories through fun family oriented activities like hiking, canoeing, and even building bird houses! Our Operation Purple Healing Adventures ensure families return home stronger with better communication skills and brand new “purple” memories
