Camp Corral is an amazing week of non-stop fun and excitement in the great outdoors for children (ages 8-15) of our military heroes. It’s for the children of brave soldiers who have been injured or fallen protecting our freedom, our way of life. Camp Corral is a wonderful chance for kids to share amazing adventures through boating, swimming, hiking, archery and doing just about everything you can do enjoying fresh air and nature. The folks at Golden Corral restaurants are proud to continue their tradition of supporting our veterans and military families by making Camp Corral possible. Golden Corral wanted to find a way to support the families of disabled veterans and those injured in the line of duty and Camp Corral was the perfect opportunity. To learn more about Camp Corral and how one week can create a lasting memory for a wonderful child visit: email@example.com or call: 1-855-605-1267.
