Registration open for Camp Corral

posted on

After a yearlong hiatus that consisted of virtual programs only, Camp Corral is planning to safely host 15 summer camps in 2021.

In partnership with DAV, Camp Corral provides free, one-of-a-kind summer camp experiences for children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members and veterans.

To qualify for Camp Corral, children must also be between the ages of 8 and 15 on the first day of camp.

The organization partners with accredited community entities that offer traditional camp experiences through activities such as horseback riding, canoeing and rock climbing. A feature unique to the Camp Corral experience is that a military family life counselor is on-site to work with campers as needed.

Camp Corral has served over 24,000 military children—the majority of whom have a parent who was wounded, made ill or killed in service.

“DAV is honored to support Camp Corral and its mission of ‘strengthening military families, one child at a time,’” said National Adjutant Marc Burgess. “We understand that the children of military members endure unique sacrifices along with their parents. One of our priorities is to give them a chance to be kids while connecting with children from similar backgrounds and experiences. After a challenging summer in 2020, these kids deserve every opportunity available to them to enjoy each other’s company and the great outdoors.”

Through DAV’s Just B Kids scholarship program, more than 4,500 children of wounded, disabled or fallen veterans throughout the nation have attended Camp Corral programs for free.
