Operation Purple Parent x Teen Experience – Alumni Pilot

Parent x Teen Experience Alumni Program 1200x200

Parents: You are Essential to Your Teen’s Mental Health

The bond between parents and their teens is vital to overcoming the unique obstacles many face growing up.

To help strengthen that relationship, we’re introducing a new kind of family program specifically designed for Operation Purple alumni to support military families with teenagers.

At Operation Purple Parent x Teen Experience, one parent and one teen get the chance to collaborate with other military families, spend some time outdoors, and engage in intentional time together without typical day-to-day noise.

Our 2022 Military Teen Experience shares how vital friendships are among our military teens, so this is also an excellent opportunity to make new friends both for parents and teens.


What Happens at a Parent x Teen Experience?

For two days, you can choose your own adventure with a range of activities like archery, boating, crafts and swimming.

We’re also conducting two guided workshops – one for teens only and one for families – then everyone comes together Saturday night for a great night of food and fun.


Who is Eligible?

Teens: Ages 13 – 19
1 teen + 1 adult family member
One attending family member must be an alumni of a previous Operation Purple experience.
