Camp Corral, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt, non-profit corporation, is a free, one-of-a-kind summer camp for children of wounded, injured, ill or fallen military service members.  Although any child from a military family (incl. veterans) is eligible, registration priority is given to children of wounded, injured, ill or fallen military service members.

The vision behind Camp Corral is one where kids, ages 8 to 15, are free to be kids, far away from the day-to-day challenges they face as children of military service members. The reality of a parent being deployed away from home for over a year is the norm for all children from military families. And for 91 percent of Camp Corral’s campers, a parent coming back injured, wounded or never coming back is their reality.
