The scope of this project, then, is to provide a route for military parents and their teenage children to connect and work together as a team during the deployment of the other parent or to reconnect after an extended absence due to deployment. Focused time together as parent and child at these camps will help the youth and their parents in learning how to connect and adapt to the changes that inevitably occur during and after a deployment, thereby increasing their resilience skills. In addition to targeting the life skill of resiliency, these camps also will target the life skills of self-responsibility, decision making, cooperation, responsible citizenship and problem solving as the parent-child duos work together to achieve joint goals through the activities, programs and challenges presented through the camps.
