CAMS Presidents' Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 CAMS Year! 

We are looking forward to another great year of networking, socializing, learning new things and going to new places, making new friends, reconnecting with old friends and celebrating our common bond as military spouses…all while having  F-U-N!!!!  

 We have frequently heard that military spouses don’t feel connected to each other in the MDW (Military District of Washington).  We encourage you to become a member of CAMS. Come and meet spouses from all the military branches, all ranks and other countries at our luncheons and events.  A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh, says “You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” Come and make the connection.     (Come and be Winnie the Pooh!)

Whether you’re a newcomer or are a seasoned resident of the area, we invite you to join us at our luncheons on the second Wednesday of the month.  We meet at Patton Hall on Fort Myer, VA. In addition to our luncheons, our members can also participate in the fun Tours, Events, and Activities that are planned for this year.  

If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities within CAMS or would like to start a special interest group of awesome Capital Area Military Spouses (CAMS) please contact us.  We welcome your suggestions, comments and questions. We always have a listening ear, and since there are two of us you get two sets of ears!

See you at the next CAMS event!

Many Minds, One Heart!
