Camp Gratitude is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a FREE week long camping experience for military and veteran families to relax and reconnect while building strength and resilience.  We do this to honor and thank these families for their service to our Country.

Please help us thank our veteran and military families by providing a generous donation.  We thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to help our cause.

*100% of the donations are applied to the actual cost of the Camp Gratitude event.  All administrators are volunteers.
