Georgia Operation: Military Kids

Georgia Operation: Military Kids (Georgia OMK) is offering many fun and exciting camping opportunities this summer for military youth.  More than 150 military kids took advantage of three camps last summer.  One parent said "My son really enjoyed camp! He came home telling us about how much fun and exciting things he did, saw, and learned. I really appreciate camps and programs like these for our military kids."  OMK camps are provided at minimal cost through funding from The Office of The Secretary of Defense.  Many summer camps are free of charge to any youth who is a dependent of a Service Member in the Active, Reserve, or Guard Component. These programs are open to all service branches. Transportation to and from the camps are the responsibility of the campers parent or guardian.
