Camp Hero

Camp Hero is a day camp program that serves military children as an outlet for youth to share their common experiences and receive academic, recreational and leadership-based enrichment. The Camp Hero experience is broken down by weekly themes that include weekly field trips helping enhance the learning experience.

Camp Hero curriculum is designed to help children find practical and fun ways to address the challenges of military life, introduce tools to help them succeed in school, and improve social and communication skills. These opportunities will take place in the classroom as well as in the community through multiple weekly field trips made possible through a variety of partners. Weekly themes are developed with the idea that each week will focus on a different area of learning and exploration. When school is out, we are here to serve you! Camp Hero offer a unique and safe environment for military dependents to build self confidence and meet new friends! Sign up today for an adventure of a lifetime!
