Virginia Beach, Virginia - More than 80 children of Virginia National Guard members attend the 13th annual Virginia National Guard Youth Camp July 23-27, 2018, at Camp Pendleton State Military Reservation in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The theme for this year’s camp was “Heroes Among Us.” In addition to learning how to make a ghillie suit and practicing some of the basics of military drill and ceremony, campers received a first-hand look at some of the vehicles and equipment their parents use while on duty for the National Guard. Representatives from Nauticus and Winchester STARBASE Academy provided educational opportunities throughout the week and trips included Ocean Breeze Water Park, the Virginia Aquarium and Busch Gardens.
