Building Strong Families & Kids

We strive to provide our Military Families and Youth with well rounded programming!
Our goal is to strengthen ties, create lifelong friends, and build leadership, resilience and camaraderie with other military families. (view program overview flier)

You know what best suits your family; so help us design the event around you!

We are looking for new ideas and locations for camps, events and programs in the areas where you live. Ideal venues would be low cost, easily accessible, community based and offer a variety of activities or programs. We know these places exist and need your help finding them. Please take time to share with us. Your contribution might be the next big success story that fills these pages.
