Since October 2001, the world in which American military children grow up has been changed dramatically by unprecedented levels of deployment and the increased reliance on Reserve and Guard members. To date, a total of over 2.1 million American men and women in uniform have deployed and of those Service members, approximately 44 percent are parents.
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. Since its founding, in 2011 as a one camp pilot program, Camp Corral has grown over 750%. Over 17,000 children have been served and the program has expanded to 22 camps in 19 states. Although any child from a military family is eligible, registration priority is given to children of wounded, injured, ill or fallen military service members.
