WWFS Sponsors Camp Corral and Offering Travel Grants to Families

April 14, 2021

Wounded Warriors Family Support is proud to announce a new sponsorship with Camp Corral. Our missions of serving our nation’s wounded warrior families made this a wonderful partnership. Camp Corral provides specialized camping experiences to the children of wounded, ill, or fallen parents which provides them with opportunities to build emotional resilience and transformational skills. Wounded Warriors Family Support will also provide travel grants to qualified families attending Camp Corral this year.

“Camp Corral provides free, transformational summer camp experiences to military youth, with a core focus on helping children of wounded, injured, ill or fallen service members.”  Since its founding in 2011, Camp Corral has grown over 750%, now having served more than 20,000 campers across the country.  Leigh has focused her efforts in stabilizing and growing the organization to become a national leader in strong partnerships across the camping industry.  Camp Corral has benefited from the implementation of corporate, individual, and annual fundraising campaigns to continue to advance their mission.  Longino believes that “every day there is a child on the waitlist, is a day I’m driven to come to work and do my best.  Every military connected child and every family can benefit from the Camp Corral experience.”

Leigh Longino, Chief Executive Officer
