Established in 2004, Operation Purple Camp has been attended by 62,000 children in 15 locations throughout the country. Children of all military branches, National Guard, and Reserves are eligible for this free weeklong summer camp. In NC, camps will be offered in two locations—Columbia and Ellerbe.
The Columbia camp will be offered for children between the ages of 7 and 17 from July 28 to August 2, 2019. The Ellerbe camp will be offered for children between the ages of 8 and 13 during July 21-26, 2019. Applications are accepted until the camp fills, in which case a waitlist is started.
