USA PATRIOTS KIDS CAMP

LIFE WITHOUT LIMBS IS LIMITLESS

Kids camp

Kids Camp is a program established in 2014 as a result of organizational growth. Our athletes were eager to give back and while on the road had come across many kids who were finally meeting an adult who looked like they did. Having grown into our largest program, Kids Camp is now supported by our Kids Camp Annual Fund and looks to raise $180,000 annually. Through this effort, we are able to bring 20 children (between 8-12 years old) with amputations or limb loss for a week-long camp, all expenses paid! Our veterans serve as coaches and mentors for these children, teaching them adaptive techniques and life lessons. There is amazing power through putting Heroes on a field with children, all of whom can relate to living a life without limbs.

Camp attendees are selected annually, but the recruitment process is all year! If you or someone you know is eligible for Kids Camp, please contact us, or sign up below!

Those are the words my husband and I taught our children long before our daughter, born with limb difference, came into our lives. This past week as our 9 year old, Annie Kate, spent a week at the Wounded Warrior softball Camp. The two common threads, of the 20 kids...

"The kids all had smiles on their faces and that meant everything to me. I know the team got a lot out of the camp and maybe even more than what the kids did. WWAST isn’t just showing people we are able to overcome obstacles in life, it’s about giving back to others and that is what this camp has done…It’s hard to express in words how much this...

Alumni camp

After years of successful mentorship, Kids Campers wanted to come back together and reunite with their coaches and other friends they have made along the way. Thus, we created an Alumni Camp!

Alumni camp is a special opportunity to brush up on softball skills while also enjoying the ability to be around others who are just like you.  We are proud to have added this program to the Kids Camp Annual Fund.
