Camp Corral is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of children of this nation’s wounded, ill, and fallen military heroes. Since its inception in 2011, Camp Corral has served nearly 25,000 children from every state in the nation with resilience-based programs focused upon the very unique attributes and challenges shared by military-connected children across the country.
In keeping with a vision to empower military children to live their best lives possible, the Camp Corral team develops and delivers specialized programming created to meet the needs of these children and their families. Along with traditional summer camp programs designed to provide respite, build peer-support connections, strengthen self-confidence, and reinforce coping skills, Camp Corral offers family camp retreats, virtual therapeutic art programs, peer connection activities, as well as holistic supportive services.
Camp Corral is a national leader and provider of educational resources, research, and advocacy related to the mental health concerns and very real hardships faced by children of wounded, ill, and fallen military service members, many of whom provide caregiving duties within the wounded warrior family unit.
Our programs provide meaningful opportunities for healing, growing, and re-energizing a weary heart. For the children who participate with Camp Corral, they experience adventure, test their limits, challenge their fears, celebrate their accomplishments, and make life affirming friendships that remind them they are not alone.
