Operation Camp


Building Connections that Strengthen Futures

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.

Program Overview

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:

  • Building confidence and enhancing self-image
  • Improving social skills that reflect age-appropriate behavior
  • Teaching conflict resolution and the healthy management and expression of anger
  • Increasing bonds with family and friends
  • Equipping military children and families with tools and resources to cope with the challenges of military life

Operation Camp is open to the public and available for children in grades Kindergarten – 5th, and runs from June 3rd through August 9th.
