Helping kids just b kids

Registration for Camp Corral through DAV’s Just B Kids Scholarship program is now available online. In partnership with DAV and Golden Corral, the program provides free, one-of-a-kind summer camp experiences for children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members and veterans.

Camp Corral works with accredited community entities that offer traditional camp experiences through activities such as horseback riding, canoeing and rock climbing, in addition to offering special resources to assist the children who share their family’s sacrifices on behalf of our nation.

Since 2011, Camp Corral has served nearly 17,000 military children—the majority of whom have a parent who was wounded, made ill or killed in service.

“DAV is honored to support Camp Corral and its mission of ‘serving those who served,’” said Marc Burgess, DAV national adjutant and CEO. “We understand that the children of military members endure unique sacrifices along with their parents. It’s one of our priorities to provide them with the resources needed to give them a chance to be kids while connecting with children from similar backgrounds and experiences. That’s just one reason DAV is so proud to be a part of it.”

In 2017, DAV departments and chapters, DAV National Headquarters and its Auxiliary raised more than $600,000 for DAV’s Just B Kids Scholarship, which helped send 1,000 kids to camp.


Applications opened Jan. 12 and will close once the session is full or one month before the first day of each camp. For more information or to apply, visit justbkids.org.
