Mission: To reconnect military families by giving them the tools they need to create, build and achieve their dreams
What is Camp Better America?
Camp Better America is a 501(c)(3) organization that focuses on the reconnection process for military families after the service member in the family returns from war. Military families come to our resort-like spots where the atmosphere is family oriented and filled with fun. It is an opportunity for the service member and his/her family to relax, let their walls down and reconnect with each other but same time, they will be exposed to leading experts in the fields of mental, financial, emotional and physical well-being. It is our goal at Camp Better America to maintain a relationship with all of the families that come to our camps and continue to offer support, tools and opportunities to these families as they move forward in life. A life changing experience can be expected.
What makes Camp Better America life changing?
Our program focuses on the entire military family. We recognize that each member of the family has different needs. At all Camp Better America camps, there are leading experts brought in from all over the country to teach on business, mental health, emotional healing, marriage, parenting and spiritual needs. These experts equip the family with valuable tools and experiences they can use now and in their future. At Camp Better America families meet and enjoy private performances from headlining entertainers in our country who all want to do what ever they can to help us "Return the Salute" to our service men and women and their families. The children have a blast with our Child-Life professionals on the many adventures that are planned for them. The night of the talent show is just one of the many incredible events the children participate in. Our Child Life Professionals are there to help aid in any internal struggles for the children that have a parent(s) serving. In many cases this may be the only show their soldier parents may be able to attend. We recognize how very special and precious military children are and understand the sacrifices that are made by the children as well. These families leave knowing that our country stands together in returning the salute and helping them achieve whatever they want in life.
Where are Camp Better America camps located?
