Idaho military families are being invited to sign up for free or low-cost family summer camps, day camps and outings, through the “Operation: Military Kids” program sponsored in part by the University of Idaho. The camps are open to all branches of guard, reserve, active duty and their families, and are part of a national Department of Defense-funded grant program to states to support families of deployed members of the military; children attend free, and must be accompanied by an adult.
The camps include the North Idaho Military Family Camp at Camp Lutherhaven near Coeur d'Alene June 24-26; the Central Idaho Military Family Camp near Ketchum July 22-24; a Yellowstone Family Outing on Aug. 21 and more; the program says each is designed to be “fun, friendly, stress-reducing and memorable.” For more information, go to the program's website or call 334-2328.
