Operation Purple Family Retreats

Operation Purple Family Retreats 2013

We will be hosting four Family Retreats in 2015. Below is our first retreat:

March 20-24, 2015 - Teton Science School, Jackson WY - APPLY NOW

Coming back together after a deployment can be difficult. Operation Purple Family Retreats provide military families with the opportunity to reconnect as a family. We are using our popular ‘camp’ approach and bringing families to beautiful outdoor locations in order to provide fun family oriented activities, new memory making, and the ability to spend quality time together. Specially adapted communication activities developed by FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress ™) ensure families return home stronger. Families are able to connect in a “purple” environment that brings families from all ranks and services including National Guard and Reserve components together as a community. We are climbing, hiking, canoeing, bonding, eating s’mores, and more!

The need for reintegration support will increase and family retreat locations are limited by funding. Help us continue to support military families with this special program by donating to Operation Purple today.

Until military families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope you will continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
