The National Military Family Association and Teton Science Schools are proud to offer service members and their families an opportunity to reconnect and explore Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, free of charge.
Since 2010, Teton Science Schools has been providing transformative experience for military families and military kids. Teton Science Schools has hosted 12 Operation Purple Family Retreats, enabling military families to spend treasured time in nature reconnecting after deployment.
Teton Science Schools will be offering 3 Operation Purple programs in 2016:
Winter Family Retreat March 11th-15th – application open now!
Summer Family Retreat June 27th-July 1st – application open March 2016
Operation Purple Kids Camp July 25th-29th – open to military youth ages 12-17
Families will stay and eat at the Jackson Campus of the Teton Science Schools and spend their days exploring Grand Teton National Park with professional environmental educators. Operation Purple Family Retreats are open to active military families who have recently had their service member return from a deployment within the last 15 months. Transportation to the Operation Purple Family Retreat is the responsibility of the selected family. The National Military Family Association provides each attending family with a $200.00 stipend to assist with travel costs.
