Camp Flaming Arrow

This resident camp in Hunt, Texas, holds a special camp one week every summer strictly for children who have a parent or parents who have been deployed or are currently deployed in the military. It is called Operation Purple Camp. Military kids receive a free week of camp where they connect with other kids just like them. It is called Operation Purple Camp because purple happens to be the perfect mix of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force Blue, Marine Corps Red, and Navy blue! Kids participate in kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, zip lining, swimming and more. It also gives them tools to deal with the stresses that come with a parent’s deployment.
