We Need You!!

Would you like to be part of an altruistic, energetic, and fun-loving group? A group that makes a difference in our community through service projects yet also has great camaraderie and fun at the same time? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then the CAMS Board needs you.

We are currently looking for volunteers to serve on the Board for the 2019-2020 Board Year. No experience necessary, just a desire to serve and a will to have fun.   

Questions?  Please contact Karen Halverson.

A Message From Our President

Welcome to Capital Area Military Spouses (CAMS) Club for school year 2018-2019!!

You’ve come to a special place.  An exciting and enjoyable place in which to join, with other military spouses and those connected to the military community, in social events meant to build relationships and highlight commonalities across all military branches. 

Thank you to everyone who supported our Super Sign up!!  What a fantastic event!  The vendors and non-profit organizations present were absolutely amazing, and our membership numbers have now reached new heights…and are still growing!

In today’s environment, where at times we are only connected through social media, we need to “unplug” every now and again and come together to build and sustain some face-to-face relationships that provide a connection much deeper than you receive through a device alone.  Our CAMS Club provides such opportunities, through monthly luncheons that are chock full of chances to make lasting friendships and have a blast doing so.  October’s Lunch is a “Tailgate” theme -- come show your favorite teams’ colors and enjoy the beginning of the Fall season and, of course, football season…and bring a friend!

This year our day trips and tours promise to be incredible.  We already have a shopping trip, a “fall colors” wine tasting trip, and a White House Tour on the books!  Check out our “Events” tab on our CAMS website for more information at  Please join us for one, more, or all! 

Whether you are a new military spouse, one that’s a little more “experienced,” or married to a retiree…whether you are part of the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Army, or Coast Guard, Active Duty or Reserve Component – WELCOME!  We encourage you to continue to share information about CAMS throughout the National Capital Region, so that we continue to expand our circle of friends!

Looking forward to meeting new friends and catching up with others!!
