Military Families: Operation Purple

Military families can apply now for one of four Operation Purple® Family Retreats held this fall! Families come together in a national park setting at an Operation Purple Family Retreat, a free, four day getaway created to help families reconnect after deployment. With an emphasis on environmental education, military families will participate in fun, family-focused activities that will allow them to strengthen and renew relationships while exploring their natural surroundings. This fall’s Family Retreats are being held at national parks in Washington, Pennsylvania, New York, and Hawaii.
