Statewide Camps and Programs for Military Families

We honor military families by providing free weekend camps for children ages 5-17 of active duty and veteran service members (with or without disabilities). Additionally, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard we offer a variety of weeklong summer camps for ages 5-17.  These fun adventurous retreats provide a way for children to connect with their peers, share stories, and create lifelong friendships.

  • Project Beacon– Free camp for children of active duty service members and veterans of all branches.
    • Retreats are held in April and October.  Find out more about the program and register HERE.
  • Camp Kidet– Free camp for children of Pennsylvania Army National Guard service members.
    • Contact us to learn more information about dates and locations for this summer.

Connect to the US Department of Veteran Affairs - Family members and friends play a critical role in a Veteran’s life, especially during difficult times. Whatever issues you and your loved one may be dealing with and however long they’ve been going on, you are not alone.  Support is available every day to Veterans, Service members, and their families and friends to help them connect with resources for managing life’s challenges and finding solutions that improve their lives.  Launched in 2011 by the US Department of Veteran Affairs, MakeTheConnection.net provides Veterans, their family members and friends, and other advocates with this valuable information.
