Camp Corral

RALEIGH, N.C., March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Golden Corral proudly announces a summer camp for children of wounded or disabled military families. This initiative was designed to continue Golden Corral’s support of America’s veterans and their families. In the Summer of 2011, Golden Corral will send 400 children of wounded or disabled military families to a week-long camp free of charge (parents are only responsible for transportation to and from camp).

For the last 10 years, Golden Corral has supported America’s veterans with their “Military Appreciation Monday” event. This event has raised over $5,000,000 for the Disabled American Veterans organization and served almost 3 million veterans a free ‘thank you’ meal.

Camp Corral will provide a fun and developmental experience where kids are free to be kids, apart from the day-to-day challenges they face as children of wounded or disabled military families. An experience at Camp Corral is a memory that will last a lifetime. Kids will have an opportunity to create friendship and bond with other kids who share a similar family situation. –
