Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Camp Corral reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery

  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Staffing

  • Grants Received


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

Donations to our organization declined by more than 65%. We applied for and received the PPP loan which allowed us to maintain employed personnel.


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

Due to social distancing requirements and health concerns, our in-person week-long 2020 summer camp programs slated to serve over 3,000 children of wounded, ill, and fallen military heroes across the country were canceled.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

Camp Corral provided all of the children who had registered for summer camp a virtual camp experience along with supplies they would have received on their first day. Additionally, virtual opportunities such as art therapy, peer connection, and leadership programs were created and implemented to enhance connection, positive coping skills, and resilience for military-connected children across the nation. Additionally, we created a plan to conduct Family Retreats for wounded warriors and their families and were able to implement those in the summer of 2021. We also took the opportunity to dive into our research in order to collect data to help us better bring awareness to the challenges faced by the children and families we serve. We structured strong advocacy collaborations and have begun sharing our research widely in order to affect positive change for the families or fallen, ill, and wounded warriors.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

The virtual programs we implemented were a huge success and positively impactful for the children and families we serve. We will continue to offer those along with the Family Retreats.

  • Thought Leadership

  • Raising Awareness

What are this organization’s external mobilizaton efforts?

Camp Corral is the only national non-profit that starts with the child to serve the needs of the veteran.

Camp Corral is a proud member of the Hidden Helpers Coalition which is focused upon the plight of children who serve as caregivers in their homes. Additionally, we have worked with other national non-profits to develop free educational resources to be utilized by schools, civic organizations, and clubs with enrolled military-connected children. These resources include the "15 Things Military and Veterans' Kids Want You to Know", as well as numerous recorded collaborative webinars and podcasts on topics related to military life, wounded warrior families, caregiving children, resilience skills, and connection opportunities. Camp Corral promotes thought leadership to change makers and government officials at all levels.

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the related concerns about physical distancing, Camp Corral could not offer our traditional week-long summer camp programs. Rather than forgoing the opportunity to provide much needed resilience-based programs for thousands of military-connected children across than nation, Camp Corral offered enrichment programs including art therapeutic sessions, learning workshops, pen pal programming, peer-network groups, and other engaging activities. These programs were offered virtually and helped reinforce support systems and build new peer connections, while also offering opportunities for respite activities and the bolstering of confidence and coping skills.
