What is Operation Purple?
Operation Purple operates camps all over the United States and offers a free week of summer fun to eligible military-connected children from all service branches including National Guard and Reserve, Coast Guard, National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, and the United States Public Health Services Commission Corps.
Priority is given to those children who have a parent that has been wounded, ill or injured (medically retired, medically discharged, active duty and reserve); or will have a parent or guardian deployed during a 15-month deployment window (December 2016  June 2019 includes pre-, during and post-deployment phases). If all spaces are not filled with campers who meet the criteria, the remaining camp slots are filled with any eligible military children. 
The Operation Purple Camp in our region takes place at Lazy F Camp,
right here in Kittitas County!
