We proudly announce the expansion of our summer camp for children of wounded or disabled military families.  In the summer of 2012, Golden Corral will send 1,800 children from military families to a week-long camp free of charge (parents are only responsible for transportation to and from camp).

Camp Corral builds on Golden Corral’s commitment to honoring our disabled American veterans and their families. For the last 11 years, Golden Corral has supported America’s veterans with their “Military Appreciation Monday” event.  This event has raised over $6,100,000 for the Disabled American Veterans state and local chapters, and served over 3 million veterans a free “thank you” meal.

Camp Corral is a one-week camp experience where kids, ages 8 to 15, are free to be kids, apart from the day-to-day challenges they face as children of wounded or disabled military families. Camp Corral will be “a week of a lifetime” providing kids non-stop fun with activities like  canoeing, swimming, arts and crafts, target sports, horseback riding and other camping activities in the great outdoors. The week will encourage campers to create friendships and bond with other kids who share a similar family situation.

My step daughter enjoyed her first summer camp experience this year thanks to Golden Corral!!  She attended Camp Corral at the Wahsega 4H Center in Dahlonega GA July 15th thru July 20th.  When her father and I asked "On a scale of 1 to 10 how was your week?".... Her response (in a 9 year old hyper scream) was "100!!!!".  We are so pleased, so greatful!  It's amazing what Golden Corral is giving to the children of Military Service Members!  Thank you is definately not a big enough word to express our feelings!!  A spontaneous "Meet me for dinner at Golden Corral in Cookeville, TN" invite from my honey led us to Camp Corral.  He is gone on the road all week so the little stolen moments we get are so precious.... this one was even more so.  We'd have not known about the camp if we'd have not gone to dinner that night.  Thank you!!!

I spent 27 months in Nam I know what it is like for our Vets today and I thank them very much for stepping up when we needed them. Thanks
