Experience Operation Purple Camp This Summer!
Does your child want to go to summer camp but not sure they can handle a whole week away from home? Do you live far from a camp location?
Let us introduce you to Operation Purple Camp at Home—the home version of our popular Operation Purple® Camp for military kids! That’s right: your child will experience the fun and magic of summer camp…from the comfort of home.
How Does it Work?
Picture this: summer camp…in a box!
Just before the start of the camp week, accepted campers will receive a special “camp in a box” delivered to their doorstep that includes fun, outdoor gear to use while your camper completes each day’s activities. In addition to exciting self-paced activities, campers will take part in a virtual experience to bring the activities to life!
What Kind of Activities are There?
- First Aid Response
- Shelter Building
- Environmental Education
- Fire Building and Fire Safety
Operation Purple Camp at Home will also help deepen your military child’s understanding of values like pride, service, teamwork, stewardship, communication, and empowerment so they’ll end the camp week with confidence and excitement to tackle all that military life throws their way.
NMFA will only accept one Operation Purple Camp application per child. You may not apply for both in-person and at-home camp. You must choose one.
