Disabled American Veterans California Chapters 35 and 93 have raised a grand total of $31,296 since 2015 for their support of Camp Corral, a summer camp unique to children of veterans.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) – For the fourth consecutive year, DAV California Chapters 35 and 93 in the Sacramento region have joined together to support Camp Corral. The mission of the camp is to transform the lives of children of wounded, injured, ill, and fallen military heroes by providing a unique summer camp experience.

“The vision behind Camp Corral is one where kids, ages 8 to 15, are free to be kids, far away from the day-to-day challenges they face as children of military service members and veterans,” according to an official statement. “We partner with some of the best camps around the United States to host each session. Camp Corral has proven to be a ‘week of a lifetime,’ providing kids non-stop fun with activities like canoeing, swimming, fishing, arts and crafts, ropes course challenges, horseback riding, and more. Campers have the priceless opportunity to connect with other kids who understand the unique challenges that come with military life. Each of our host camps provides top-quality programming that teaches the skills needed to build emotional resilience. The positive effects may follow a child for a lifetime.

This year, DAV California Chapters 35 and 93 were able to raise over $9,000. Since 2015, the Chapters have raised a total of $31, 296 for their support of Camp Corral.
