Be Good. Do Good. Feel Good.

Join us for our first ever Operation Purple Summer Challenge—a free, self-paced activity experience to stay entertained and connected with other military kids and families for eight weeks this summer.

Each week, participants will receive a series of “Challenges” to get them reading, exploring nature, drawing, connecting with family, and even helping in their community. From June to July, we’ll meet virtually every Wednesday in a “Global Gathering” to share the past week’s adventures with one another.

Why is it a Challenge?

Each Challenge activity is given a point value, which accumulate every time participants complete one. The more points you earn, the better; there are prizes to win all summer long!
