Operation Purple Recognizes Kids Serve Too!

NEW-Operation-Purple-LogoWhen you hear "Operation Purple camp" yNols_operation_purple_1ou should think: Kids Serve Too! The National Military Family Association's Operation Purple camp is a time for having fun, making friends, and reminding military kids that they are the Nation's youngest heroes. Camps are free to all participants thanks to support from the Sierra Club and The Sierra Club Foundation.

This summer, NOLS Professional Training was proud to host two 10-day Teen Leadership Expeditions (Camps) for 24 excited teenagers of military families. Backpacking through the Rocky Mountains (NOLS Teton Valley), these Operation Purple participants learned how to camp, hike, navigate, and lead their expedition-mates. 

For more information, watch this Sierra Club documentary about the National Military Family Association's Operation Purple program:
