I can't believe that it is time to start thinking about summer and camp already, but it is. The National Military Family Association has released the list of dates and locations for their spectacular (and free!) Operation Purple camps. My kids went last year and they had a fantastic time - all the fun of a traditional summer camp, surrounded by other military kids that understand their lives.
Applications may be submitted through April 16th. First priority is given to children who have had a parent deployed between December 2009 and December 2010. There are camps all over the US, in Germany, and in Guam. This is a wonderful blessing for military families, giving the parents some time to catch their breath while the children do all sorts of amazingly fun things.
