Another announcement: stay tuned for information about a sailing program that will be open (free of charge) to children in military families living on Cape Cod. I cannot pay to promote this page, so I am relying on all of you to share it so the people who qualify for and need these programs can access them. I will be posting the flyer as soon as we fine tune the details, but it is definitely going to happen and it is an unbelievable opportunity for youth ages 8 and older to learn how to sail!

Hope to see some of you out at the National Cemetery on Saturday at 9 AM for the annual Flags for Vets event. I'll be there with my 91 yo father who served in the Navy during WWII.


More amazing news: Have been busily writing grants to acquire accommodations for riders with disabilities. Heroes in Transition generously funded an adaptable adult saddle, and I just found out that the Gold Club of Cape Cod fund of the Cape Cod Foundation fully funded our application for an adaptable youth saddle and a portable ramp!! This will expand our ability to do outreach to veterans, their families and other participants with disabilities!
Stay tuned for more details and photos as this story unfolds. We will also be releasing our family camp brochure soon!!


Happy Friday! Our Air Force?AG Camp, Saddle UP and Serve, is almost full, so please email me at [email protected]. if you are interested in applying.
There is still room in the DoD Reintegration Camp on July 13-17, for families anywhere in the deployment process. We applied for twice as many spaces this year and it is going to be wonderful!!

Good Morning Friends;
As of March 31, Operation Military Kids will no longer exist as you know it. I am looking into a new name for our program here on Cape Cod, since the funding for the camps is all from a military partnership and the Dept. Of Defense. I have been advised to transition to a new name now so there will be less confusion later. We are thinking about Cape Cod Military Family Outreach Programs. What do you think? I have two $10.00 Target gift certificates for the persons who suggest a name that gets the most likes! Post below and people can vote by hitting like! This does not guarantee that we will use the name, as there are others who need to approve, but it does mean that your entry will be considered!!!
