Summer is around the corner, so it’s time to register for Camp Corral through DAV’s Just B Kids Scholarship program. DAV and Golden Corral are again teaming up to help provide a free, one-of-a-kind summer camp for children of wounded, ill, injured or fallen military service members or veterans.
Camp Corral, which has been helping kids be kids since 2011, provides fun-filled summer camp activities like swimming, horseback riding, canoeing and crafts that give kids a chance to relax, have fun and make new friends. Many campsites offer special resources to help children who share in their loved ones’ sacrifices on behalf of our nation.
“DAV is proud to be a part of the Camp Corral experience and serving the children of those who have served,” said National Adjutant Marc Burgess. “Many military children have big responsibilities at home due to their loved ones’ injuries, and Camp Corral gives them the opportunity to have a week of fun and sharing their experiences with other military children with the same background. Many of these children are away from military bases, so Camp Corral gives them the chance to meet others who share the same challenges of being in a military family.”
