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 2018-2019 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 the Capital Area Military Spouses’ (CAMS) website!  For those of you who are unfamiliar with CAMS, or who have only recently joined us, we are a relatively new spouse club within the National Capital Region.  Having been formed in January 2016, giving us only a year and a half under our belts, we still ended this past year with over 170 members!  We are an all-ranks, all-service organization looking to embrace and gain from the diversity which members from each of the services bring to our group.  This allows “Many Minds” to come together and reflect the “One Heart” of our military spouse community – hence, our motto, “Many Minds, One Heart.”

My absolute favorite part of this unique military spouse experience is the potential to make new and lasting friendships. With our Capital Area Military Spouses, you’ll have the chance to meet many people from different branches of service in a friendly, casual social gathering.  I have no doubt that you will enjoy all of the programs we currently have scheduled for the coming year.

To assist you in getting involved, and perhaps joining our club, please “save the date” on your calendar for September 12 -- this is when we have scheduled our 2018 membership kick-off event.  We will gather at Patton Hall on Joint Base Myer Henderson Hall – please check out our “events” section for more information. 

Thank you for thinking about becoming a member of CAMS.  We sincerely hope you will join our ranks -- we can’t wait to get to know you!
