Wounded Warriors Family Support has become an official sponsor of Camp Corral, a leading provider of support and enrichment opportunities for the children of this nation’s wounded, ill and fallen military heroes.
Camp Corral offers year-round resilience programming to include Summer Camp and Family Camp Retreats. With a shared focus on providing respite to those who care for wounded and ill service members, Wounded Warriors Family Support and Camp Corral will collaborate to ensure their programs are available to as many families as possible.
“It’s an honor and privilege to join forces with Camp Corral to expand Wounded Warriors Family Support’s programs through outdoor adventures and resilience programming for the children and families of our nation’s veterans and caregivers,” Wounded Warriors Family Support CEO and President Kate McCauley said. “We believe that together, we can offer these families an opportunity to rest and strengthen their ability to thrive.”
Camp Corral’s programs are designed to provide respite, build peer-support connections, strengthen self-confidence and reinforce coping skills for the children of wounded warriors. This makes Camp Corral, based in Raleigh, North Carolina, a natural focus of support for Wounded Warriors Family Support due to its concentration on providing support to combat-wounded warriors, their caregivers and family members.
“Communities often do not consider their heightened challenges that military children face on a daily basis, particularly those who have stepped up to be a caregiver for an ill or wounded parent,” Camp Corral Chief Operating Officer Lori Noonan said. “Partnering with WWFS will act as a force multiplier to ensure families receive the dedicated support they have earned through their service and sacrifice to our country.”
