Ready, Set, Summer!


Take the Summer Survival Pledge:

I promise to:

  • Embrace the long hot days
  • Revel in the rainy cold ones and
  • Endure the endless ones spent PCS packing and unpacking.

Blue Star Families will help you survive and even thrive until school starts again!


Blue Star Museums

Come on in, free through the summer!

Roll out the red carpet starting Memorial Day. Beat the heat at an art museum, chase away boredom at a zoo, or take a walk on the wild side at a nature center.

Head out to Blue Star Parks!

Kick off the flip flops and lace up your hiking boots!

Military families can visit over 2,000 national parks and federal recreation centers at no cost by going to a Federal Recreation site and getting the America the Beautiful park pass.
