|AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary is a subordinate of AMVETS. We have been in the
business of assisting veterans and their communities for over 50 years. It's a
volunteer effort that we proudly carry out. From looking after our veterans and
their families to those hospitalized and in need - all related to a veteran ourselves -
are committed to working for the good of our country and the needs of its citizens.
We firmly believe that our service to our family members in the military did not
stop with their discharge. For that reason, Auxiliary members across the nation
give their time and efforts to ensure that our veterans' needs are met.

Camp Corral is a free, week-long summer camp for military children, ages 8 to 15, with priority given to children
of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members. Camp Corral provides a fun and developmental
experience where kids are free to be kids, apart from the day-to-day challenges they face within their military
Campers participate in traditional camp experiences, including horseback riding, canoeing, swimming, fishing,
archery, a ropes course and other outdoor activities while learning new skills, building character and making
new friends. Camp Corral works closely with Redwoods Group to select partner YMCA and 4-H host camps,
and currently has 20 camp locations in 16 states, with 22 sessions offered throughout the summer.
(Oklahoma, Texas, South Carolina, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Colorado, New York, Illinois, California,
Kansas, Ohio, Washington,, Indiana, Virginia, Pennsylvania)
Camp Corral's mission is to "serve those who have served us". Camp Corral is committed t increasing the
number of children served by expanding its reach in communities around the country through meaningful,
recreational camp experiences where military kids are free to be kids and enjoy non-stop fun, free of charge.
Camp Corral is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit corporation and relies on donations to fund its camp
program, and operational costs. Golden Corral is the founding sponsor of Camp Corral and continues to
generously support the organization through its in-store fund raising campaign in April and May. To ensure that
Camp Corral can continue to expand and serve even more military families, the organization depends on other
sources of support.

I have four grandsons ages 9-14 who have the good fortune to experience several types of camps over many
years. It's an experience every child should be able to enjoy. Their participation camp activities will be
remembered the rest of their lives.
