Camps and camping opportunities continue to be one of Armed Services YMCA’s most popular programs. This fun and educational summer day camp program encourages healthy living and recreation, fosters social connections, and helps children strengthen their confidence.
Operation Camp provides opportunities for military children to make meaningful connections. For military children, who may face moving to a new city, state, and school every two to three years, these friendships, support networks, and memories last a lifetime.
Operation Camp focuses on:
A child’s formative years aren’t just based on the typical school-year calendar. We engage military children in a focused, but fun environment of childhood education. Socialization skills and healthy living behaviors are gained through our licensed Summer Camp retreats. Each week is themed to enhance learning while developing strong and resilient military children. We provide a firm footing to enable these young people to reach their full potential.
