The Camp Better America mission is 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 helps military families reconnect after the service member returns from war.
Military families come to our resort-like camps where the atmosphere is family-oriented and fun-filled. It is an opportunity for the service member and his/her family to relax, let their walls down, and reconnect with each other. At the same time, they are exposed to leading experts in the fields of mental health, financial services, 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 retreats 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. Recognizing that each member of the family has different needs, Camp Better America invites leading experts in various fields such as; business, mental health, emotional healing, marriage, parenting, and spiritual direction to share their expertise, equipping the families with valuable tools and experiences.
Kids have a blast at Camp Better America. Child-Life professionals guide military children on an life-changing bonding experience through the use of art, creative exploration, team challenges, and a talent show - which in many cases may be the only show their service member parents may be able to attend. Military children are so special and may understand sacrifice, patriotism and hope more so than other children. At Camp Better America we want to honor this.
