*This year, a new component has been added to the Great Navy Campout with the Pledge to Camp initiative. The Navy MWR Community Recreation and Liberty programs are encouraging participants to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, whether it’s their first or hundredth time, in a backyard or a national park! Explore and share your adventures each month from Memorial Day weekend through October for your chance to win a $500 gift card! Two winners will be randomly selected each month: one E1-E5 winner and one winner selected from E6 and above military personnel and other eligible MWR patrons. At the end of the event in October, two grand prize winners will be randomly selected for a $2,500 gift card! There will be one E1-E5 grand prize winner and one grand prize winner selected from E6 and above military personnel and other eligible MWR patrons. All you have to do is Pledge to Camp.
