Frequently Asked Questions

The following information—while not intended to be a complete summary of the program—addresses frequently asked counselor/ provider questions. Magellan provides additional program details as part of our initial training series for participating counselors.

Program Overview

What is the Military & Family Life Counseling Program, and what is Magellan’s role?

The United States Department of Defense (DoD) awarded Magellan Behavioral Health (Magellan) a contract to manage the Military & Family Life Counseling Program (MFLC). Initially developed in 2004, MFLC provides short-term, situational, problem-solving, non-medical, “walk-around” life counseling services to active duty military members and their families. MFLC services are intended to ensure that personal and family issues of military service members do not detract from military operational readiness. Through MFLC, service and family members have access to confidential counseling services with trained professionals who are not part of the military system. The services are generally offered on military bases or in nearby local schools and other community settings.

How is MFLC different from other programs the DoD might already have in place?

MFLC services are meant to augment, not replace, other existing DoD military support services or programs. These include Military OneSource (the military EAP), medical services provided at Military Treatment Facilities, and TRICARE mental health resources. MFLC is unique in that it provides mobile, confidential, non-medical counseling at no cost to military service personnel and their families. Counseling sessions can occur in a variety of settings and are adaptable to meet the needs of the clients. Also, the non-medical counseling can be as brief as a couple of minutes or more involved; it is not expected to conform to a 50-minute counseling standard. Sessions are adaptable to the presented need.

What branches of the military does MFLC serve?

MFLC serves members of all branches of the United States military including service members in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force, as well as those in the National Guard and Reserves. The families of these service members are also eligible to receive counseling support services under the MFLC Program.

What counselor characteristics are desirable as part of this program?

Ideal MFLC counselors will have a passion for serving the military so that service members can continue to focus on what they do best—serving and defending the nation’s freedom. MFLC counselors should be easily accessible, approachable and ready to connect service members and families with the most appropriate resources to address their issue(s). MFLC counselors should be knowledgeable about military culture, responsive to a full range of service member and family needs, and skilled at short-term, solution-focused problem solving. Finally, MFLC counselors need to demonstrate understanding, sensitivity, and empathy for service members and their families, including the ability to develop trusting relationships and to work effectively with individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

How is the counselor role under MFLC different from what I may be doing now in my independent practice?

The MFLC counselor role during a rotation or surge assignment requires a commitment to providing services in the context of a flexibly 40 hour work week onsite at or near military bases. “On-demand” assignments are typically weekend-length commitments. Each counselor’s work hours are tracked, as is basic client encounter information, but there are no clinical notes, counseling records or claims/billing functions involved.

What part of the MFLC program has Magellan been awarded?

Magellan is one of three organizations awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to deliver the MFLC Program, which provides short-term, solution-focused, “walk-around” life counseling services to active duty military members and their families.

Magellan’s award is to furnish MFLC “rotational” counselors (those assigned 40 hours per week to military installations, or bases) throughout the Continental U.S. (CONUS) where we have been designated as the “primary” vendor. Additionally, Magellan will furnish counselors for “on-demand” (1-3 days) and “surge” (1-3 months) assignments in CONUS and Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S. Territories as requested by the Department of Defense.

When does the program start and when can I expect to hear about available assignment?

The MFLC counselor role during a rotation or surge assignment requires a commitment to providing services in the context of a flexibly 40 hour work week onsite at or near military bases. “On-demand” assignments are typically weekend-length commitments. Each counselor’s work hours are tracked, as is basic client encounter information, but there are no clinical notes, counseling records or claims/billing functions involved.


Counselor Credentialing, Contracting and Employment

During the MFLC counselor recruitment process, an organization with which I wasn’t familiar (not Magellan) contacted me to gauge my interest in participating. Why is that?

Magellan works with several small business partner organizations that are assisting us in identifying and employing a counselor workforce for certain rotation assignments for which we have primary responsibility. In many federal contracts there is an obligation for the primary contractor to utilize business entities that are small business, minority-owned, women-owned, disabled-owned, veteran-owned, or disabled veteran-owned. Magellan works with several such businesses as part of the MFLC contract. If you become an employed MFLC rotational counselor for a Magellan subcontractor, you will work directly with Magellan for operational direction and guidance.

I’ve been a Magellan provider for many years, and also an MHN provider. Is this new MFLC credentialing process different from the credentialing I’ve already done with Magellan?

Yes, there are several requirements specific to this contract with the DoD. The additional credentialing items you need to complete include a MFLC addendum to your provider participation agreement, a notice and authorization form (for a background check and fingerprinting), obtaining fingerprints and, if applicable, a Child and Youth Behavioral counselor attestation form. If you become a Magellan rotational employee additional criteria will be required (e.g., drug screening) during the on-boarding process.

I’ve served as an MFLC, and I completed MFLC-specific training with MHN. Do I still have to do new training with Magellan?

Yes. We have clarified this issue with the DoD. The MFLC-specific training is the responsibility of the vendor placing you in the assignment. So you’ll need to do the Magellan online training courses. For experienced counselors, this training can serve as a good refresher, addressing current issues in the program. You should be able to complete the online courses with relative ease.

Will all new MFLC counselors move from independent contractor status to full-time Magellan employee status after 60-90 days, or is becoming a full-time employee optional?

Yes, there are several requirements specific to this contract with the DoD. The additional credentialing items you need to complete include a MFLC addendum to your provider participation agreement, a notice and authorization form (for a background check and fingerprinting), obtaining fingerprints and, if applicable, a Child and Youth Behavioral counselor attestation form. If you become a Magellan rotational employee additional criteria will be required (e.g., drug screening) during the on-boarding process.

Do I need to mail back all pages in the credentialing packet you sent me?

There are several options. You can mail back all pages, or you can fax back just the following pages:

  • The first page and signature page of your signed provider participation agreement (if applicable)
  • The first page and signature page of your signed MFLC addendum
  • The completed notice of authorization form (for the background check and fingerprinting)
  • Both pages of the CYB attestation form (if applicable)

You can fax these items toll-free to 1-888-656-6795. Keep a copy of all pages for your records.

What are the different types of counselor roles comprising the MFLC Program?

There are generally three types of counselor service roles under MFLC. Some MFLC counselors may serve on regular “rotations” (assignments to specific military bases for one to six months). Or they may perform more short-term, as-needed services known as “surge” support (30 to 90 days to support a specific activity), or provide very short-term “on-demand” support (lasting one to three days). Additional detail about these roles appears in the subsequent Service Duration section.

What counselor qualifications are required?

In order to perform MFLC duties, counselors must hold at least a master’s degree from an accredited graduate program in a mental health-related field, such as social work, psychology, marriage/family therapy, or counseling. They must have a minimum of two years’ full-time counseling experience post-master’s degree and have a license to practice at the independent practice level. They also must have demonstrated experience working with family programs and/or advocacy services, military or civilian social service agencies, and/or they must be a military family member with full understanding of military lifestyle. In addition, counselors for the Child and Youth Behavioral (CYB) Program must have proven qualifications and experience in working with children and youth. All MFLC counselors must be U.S. citizens.

Counselors interested in serving this program undergo a thorough program-specific credentialing process. In addition to providing evidence of licensure and confirmation of education, counselors must successfully complete a criminal history background check and fingerprinting. They must also successfully complete a comprehensive Magellan MFLC training program.

Why is a background check required?

Because of the integral role that counselors fulfill in supporting military service members and their families (including children) on and around military bases, it is crucial that all counselors and their supervisors successfully complete a criminal history background evaluation, including fingerprinting, and have their professional credentials (e.g., license, education, etc.) verified prior to performing MFLC duties. Counselors who have been terminated from a government contract, had their professional license suspended and/or terminated, or are under investigation by a licensing board are not permitted to provide services for this program.

Is it true that some participating MFLC counselors may become full-time employees of Magellan?

Yes.  As demonstrated by your Magellan provider contract addendum, the MFLC rotational counseling role was structured on a contract basis, initially. However, those counselors who live near a rotational assignment (and a few travelers) and have the availability and interest in taking on the rotational role with MFLC will become Magellan rotational employees, or employees of our subcontracting partners JCS or NSI. The transition to rotational employee will begin during the 1st quarter of 2013.

Is there any effect on my Magellan contract status if I don’t want to participate?

A decision to not become an MFLC rotational employee or an MFLC participating provider for surge and on-demand events will not affect your contract status with regards to serving other Magellan products. 

If I participate, can I negotiate the reimbursement rate for my services under MFLC?

No, the rate has been established at an equitable level that is not negotiable.

What is the training that I’ll need to undergo?

You must complete Magellan’s online MFLC training series before being deployed. The training program focuses on key features of service delivery, including walk-around counseling and referral requirements; military and community-based resources; and military life, including military family and lifestyle issues. The training also strives to increase MFLC counselor awareness of cultural issues within the military, and to inform counselors of the available programs, services and resources that support this population. Upon completion of the training modules, you will be required to attain a passing score on a training post-test as part of the requirements for this program.

Military Base Assignments

At which military installations does Magellan have primary responsibility for staffing the MFLC & CYB rotational counselors?

Through the MFLC contract award from the Department of Defense (DoD), Magellan has been designated primary for a total of 502 rotational assignments. These include both MFLC adult counselors and Child and Youth Behavioral (CYB) counselors, as shown in the staffing levelsummary. The information in the summary is derived from a U.S. government website (see primary location at the bottom of the government web page).

I completed all the credentialing steps to become an MFLC counselor, but have not heard back from Magellan with assignment information.

Magellan’s initial emphasis has been recruiting counselors who are local to military installations for rotational assignments. Then we expanded outward in geographic proximity and also sought counselors for on-demand and surge assignments. If you have submitted your information but have not yet heard back from Magellan, you will hear from us soon. We are processing your information and will contact you to confirm your assignment location and date as soon as possible. If you have further questions, you can send us an email at

A decision to not become an MFLC rotational employee or an MFLC participating provider for surge and on-demand events will not affect your contract status with regards to serving other Magellan products. 

When you notify counselors by email that they are slotted to fill a rotation assignment at a base, do you notify multiple counselors at once, such that they then have to compete in some way for the assignment? Or if I get an email from you, does that mean I definitely have the rotation once I accept it?  

When you get a rotational assignment phone call and email from Magellan and accept the assignment, it means that you have been assigned the specified rotation. After a counselor has completed the credentialing process and we have a specific start date from the DoD, we will send an email agreement  (CTA) that identifies the specifics of your rotation including the location and the start and end date.

If I do a rotational assignment, what happens after (for example) the 6-month period when I need to rotate to a different assignment? In other words, if I live near a single installation, where else could I possibly work after the 6 months?

It is our intent to rotate assignments within a military installation or between nearby local installations. Many bases have multiple assignments within the base. For example at Ft. Carson, Magellan is responsible for 7 CYB schools and 4 CYB Child Development Center (CDC) rotations in Colorado Springs. We could have those 11 counselors assigned on the same base and rotate after 6 months to a new, distinct assignment on the same base. They could also rotate between bases, e.g., between Ft. Carson and the Air Force Academy, both which are located in Colorado Springs, and still be “local.”

Once all local rotational assignments are filled for an installation, what happens to the other candidates who were interested in working local to that installation?

Even when candidates are not selected for an initial local rotational assignment, their inclusion in the MFLC network is important. Magellan would like such candidates to be available to serve as a traveling rotational counselors or to fill surge and on-demand assignments, in addition to being available for future rotations at the local base. 

How will I know which military base(s) I am designated to serve?

The base or installation you will serve should correspond to your geographic location, i.e., proximity to a specific military facility. In addition to reviewing and verifying each counselor’s credentials (and thus the counselor’s suitability for serving the MFLC Program), Magellan seeks counselors who are located near i.e., within 50 miles, specific military bases where Magellan has primary responsibility for the MFLC adult counselors, Child Youth Behavioral (CYB) school-based counselors, and CYB Child Development Center- and Youth Center-based counselors. Magellan is actively recruiting and accepting applications for counselors interested in serving in these roles.

What if I want to participate but I don’t reside near a military base?

You can still participate. In reaching out to providers initially, Magellan contacted those who are located within a 50-mile radius of specific military bases. If being outside of a 50-mile radius would cause a barrier to your participation as a rotational counselor, such participation may not be a good fit for you at this time. However, Magellan also has responsibility for on-demand (1-3 day events) and surge (30-90 day events); if this type of commitment would fit for you, please let us know of your interest. These on-demand and surge assignments are not base- or installation-specific.

How will I be notified that there are available assignments at a particular base?

For the rotational and surge assignments, you will receive an email from Magellan with the specific assignment and an agreement document. For on-demand events, Magellan will outreach to you either by phone or e-mail depending upon how temporally proximate the event is. 

What happens if I’ve signed up for the program, but when a suitable assignment becomes available, I’m not available to fulfill it for some reason?

You do not have to take an assignment for which you are not available or that you do not feel comfortable taking. Conversely, if you accept an assignment, you need to make a full commitment of work hours and flexibility.

By agreeing to participate, what kind of schedule will I be agreeing to keep?

The hours will vary according to the needs of the military base or event. Rotational MFLC counselors will need to maintain a flexible, 40-hour-per-week schedule that allows for regular contact with military installation staff during office hours, with the flexibility to respond to family needs after hours, including evenings, weekends, and federal holidays. For example, a counselor may meet with a family group at 1800 hours (6:00 p.m.) and meet a unit returning via aircraft on the tarmac at 0200 hours (2:00 a.m.). Counselors filling on-demand and surge assignments also will need to be flexible to meet the needs of service members and theirs families at times outside typical working hours.

Providing Counseling Services

I have heard that Magellan will not pay expenses for any MFLCs who do not live close to installations and need to travel to fulfill their assignments.

If there is an installation where Magellan must designate a counselor to travel non-locally in order to fulfill the assignment, the MFLC Program via Magellan will cover the expenses.

With what sorts of issues will I be expected to help service members and families?

Your counseling support will address issues that are specific to military service and lifestyle. MFLC is intended to help service members and families cope with normal reactions to the often stressful situations created by deployments and reintegration. You will assist with issues that include, among others:

  • Mobilization/relocation adjustment
  • Deployment stress
  • Isolation, separation and homesickness
  • Grief and loss
  • Anxiety
  • Reunion and reintegration
  • Relationship issues
  • Coping skills and building resiliency


How will I gain access to a military base?

During the Magellan training series, you will receive information on how to appropriately access military bases.  You will work with your regional supervisor who is familiar with the nuances of your specific base to obtain access.  

How will I engage military service members and families to provide counseling?

While assigned to a specific base, you will be closely integrated with the activities so that you can recognize trends that affect service members within that base. Each military installation will have a designated Point of Contact (POC) with whom you will interface on a daily and ongoing basis to ensure that MFLC services are meeting the needs of the individual installation.

Opportunities for engaging service members and families will likely include deployment meetings, reintegration meetings, Yellow Ribbon events, drill weekends, child/youth events, and Strong Bonds Retreats. At military events and in the community, MFLC counselors should be a visible presence, being available to service members/family members upon request and proactively seeking out those whose behavior may indicate a potential need.

How would I identify myself to service members as a MFLC counselor?

On bases and at service member events, you should identify yourself by name and as a counselor in the MFLC Program. You will have an identification badge provided by the program. In addition, you will receive an identification card that you can offer to service members and their families upon initial contact. You should not wear name tags or other items that identify you as a Magellan representative (whether as an employee or contracted counselor).

I’m well accustomed to providing counseling/therapy services in an office setting, but can you provide more detail about the “walk-around” counseling services delivered on bases?

MFLC counseling services are delivered face-to-face using a walk-around/coaching approach, usually at or near participating installations, but also within the civilian communities. MFLC counselors go to where the people are instead of waiting for people to schedule an appointment to see them, but an appointment can be made if desired. For example, counselors may meet with family readiness groups; meet service members returning from deployments (including welcome events at airports); be available at reintegration orientations; meet with rear detachment commanders and other community agency staff upon request; brief commanders and leadership; and work with children and youth. Counselors may also need to provide services outside the gates of installations nearest to where families live and socialize. This may include placing counselors in housing areas and/or community agencies (Red Cross, Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs and others) frequented by families.

What are the services provided to children/youth?

Children, youth, and their families receive services through the Child and Youth Behavioral Counseling Program (CYB). The CYB Program is designed to support staff, parents, and—with parental consent—children of the military, on topics specific to growing up in the military culture (like coping with deployment) as well as normal child issues such as peer relationships, managing anger, and dealing with divorce. Counselors are present onsite and available to address needs as they arise in military Child Development Centers located on or near the installations, Department of Defense Education Activity schools, local education agencies, youth centers, National Military Family Association “Operation Purple Camps,” and summer enrichment programs sponsored by the Department of Defense.

The Magellan training modules will provide additional detail on how CYB counseling services are initiated and deployed, and how the CYB counselor works with military program directors and their clinical supervisors.

For rotational assignments, what is the limit in hours that one “session” can take up? How do I get paid for any overage?

Session time lengths are flexible based on client needs. You are compensated based on a flexible 8-hour work day. The scope of service for an MFLC counselor includes many coordinating activities that are not session-based.

What if a service member appears to need medical care, behavioral health treatment, or something else beyond what I’m contracted to provide?

If a service member’s medical issues or behavioral health issues appear to be beyond the scope of the MFLC program (e.g., behavioral conditions with a DSM IV diagnosis), you must immediately refer the service or family member to a hospital, a Military Treatment Facility (MTF) or TRICARE services as appropriate. During training you will receive orientation to the specific resources to utilize.

If a service member’s medical issues or behavioral health issues appear to be beyond the scope of the MFLC program (e.g., behavioral conditions with a DSM IV diagnosis), you must immediately refer the service or family member to a hospital, a Military Treatment Facility (MTF) or TRICARE services as appropriate. During training you will receive orientation to the specific resources to utilize.

What other services might I be asked to deliver?

At the occasional request of the military installation or Magellan, MFLC counselors will deliver presentations and briefings at bases, special events in the community and other settings. The presentations will be provided for military personnel, families, and organizations that support the military. Sample presentation topics could include “Time Management,” “Maintaining your Marriage During Deployments,” “Teaching Children Problem-Solving Skills,” “Compassion Fatigue,” and “Anger Management.” Materials will be provided to you for each such presentation or briefing.

Will you reimburse me for expenses such as travel?

There should be little if any need for counselor reimbursement exceeding the contracted rate. Magellan deploys counselors and other staff in a manner that minimizes travel costs. Any out-of-area travel must be approved in advance, and the travel expenses need to conform to current Federal Travel Regulations (FTRs). Neither Magellan nor the government will reimburse any expenses that exceed the FTR.

Encounter Documentation/Reporting

Magellan has said that counselors will get paid for a 40-hour week, essentially 8 hours a day. What if I've tried to provide as much service as possible on a given day, but I could only clock 3 or 4 service activity hours through my smartphone? Could I end up getting paid for just a 20- or 25-hour week instead of 40? 

The schedule is for a flexible 40 hours per week. The number of hours worked is not tied to the contact hours. It is important for counselors to initiate as many contacts as possible and to make themselves visible, approachable, and available. However, the 40-hour work week is the number of hours that you are available and “on duty” in an MFLC or CYB position. In the scenario described above you would be paid for 40 hours because you were on duty and available for 40 hours. You need to accurately record the contacts and the number of hours worked each day.

New FAQ: I understand documenting my hours of service with clients, but do I get paid for my meetings with a Magellan regional supervisor? How do I document those meetings? 

You will be paid for all MFLC- or CYB-related activities at the hourly rate. Activities such as clinical or administrative supervision are important and are considered part of the MFLC or CYB role. Your rotational assignment should be viewed as an 8-hour-a-day, five-day-per-week position. You are paid for the time and availability, not on a per-activity basis. All activities, however, need to be recorded and submitted, as these activities help to justify the continuation of the position on the installation.

How do I determine if an individual is eligible for MFLC services?

Counselors must verify an individual’s eligibility for services by tactfully asking to see a military ID card or other appropriate identification if they are unable to visually establish eligibility. The counselor may exercise discretion regarding how to best verify.

How do I document the sessions or encounters that I have with service members and/or family?

If you are working a rotational assignment you will submit your daily activity reports either via the secure Magellan MFLC Program website or through our Smartphone app CareP. If you are working a surge or on-demand assignment you will submit your activity reports through the secure Magellan MFLC Program website.  As a last resort, you can document your activities on our daily activity paper forms and send those reports to Magellan administrative support via fax.

How do I submit my daily activity information to Magellan?

You will submit your daily activity reports online via the secure Magellan MFLC Program website. You can use your smartphone or a computer with Internet access. If neither is available, you can document your activities on paper and send the report to Magellan administrative support via fax.

What specific information do I need to impart to and gather from the client at the time of service?

The full range of information to be exchanged will be communicated to you during your training, but in general you should obtain informed consent and explain the limits of confidentiality (e.g., duty to warn, child abuse/neglect, and domestic abuse/sexual assault).

During your initial meeting with the client or family member, you should discuss informed consent including your role, the types of issues that can be discussed in non-medical counseling, how counselors utilize solution-focused techniques and motivational interviewing strategies to elicit change, the scope of services that can be provided, and how referrals can be made to additional resources.

As part of documenting the encounter, you should note that the informed consent and confidentiality review occurred without including personally identifiable information (PII). You should carry paper copies of the confidentiality statement (furnished by Magellan) for service and family members who wish to retain a copy.

Service Duration

What is a “rotation”?

A rotation is the duration of an ongoing assignment for serving a specific military base. This is a full-time (highly flexible 40-hour per week) commitment. Although MFLC support of the base will be ongoing, individual counselors will rotate to another assignment within one to six months.

What are “surge” services?

Surge services are short-term support provided to a military unit for a specified period. Typically, counselors are deployed for 30 to 90 days, full-time (a highly flexible 40-hour per week), to support an activity such as a Brigade Combat Team returning from combat.

What are “on-demand” services?

On-demand services refers to short-term non-medical counseling support and psycho-educational support of service members and families at National Guard and Reserve events. This includes support for units during drill weekends, family events, pre-/during/post-deployment events, Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program events, and two-week annual training. On-demand services are typically required on weekends, at National Guard Drill Centers or Reserve Centers, or at family events with in the community. Short-term on-demand support typically lasts one to three days.

I maintain a busy private practice. Won’t agreeing to participate disrupt my practice?

Maintaining a busy full-time practice would be incompatible with a flexilbe 40 hour per week rotation on a military base. The number of private practice hours you want to continue to put in, along with your degree of scheduling flexibility, may be key determinants in deciding whether to participate in rotational assignments.  You still may want to apply for the opportunities presented by surge and especially on-demand assignments.  Agreeing to participate in the MFLC network places no obligation on you to accept a specific assignment.

Magellan Staff Administration

How is the MFLC Program directed?

Magellan has established a central MFLC Program Management Office (PMO) to support the overall quality and effectiveness of the program, and to ensure timely assignment of counselors at military bases and youth programs nationwide.

Who is in charge of the program?

Key PMO leadership personnel for our counseling operation include the Field Operations Director and three Regional Directors who have responsibility for overseeing approximately 20 Regional Supervisors who are assigned to specific U.S. geographic regions for this large program. The Regional Supervisors provide guidance and clinical supervision to the MFLC counselors serving at installations/locations in their region. The Field Operations Director, Regional Directors and Regional Supervisors are all clinically trained professionals.

Who will be my direct Magellan contact?

As an MFLC rotational counselor, you will be assigned and report to one of the Regional Supervisors; you will meet with the Regional Supervisor at least twice a month for individual supervision and at least twice a month for group supervision. During these meetings, various areas of non-medical counseling delivery will be discussed, including specific situations brought to counselors by service and family members. Your Regional Supervisor will be available to you as needed for unscheduled consultation, guidance and support. Regional Supervisors also will coordinate the activities of MFLC counselors on surge and on-demand assignments and provide them guidance as needed.

Will a Regional Supervisor give me my service assignments?

No, Magellan will contact you via email with assignment opportunities for you. Once you’ve begun an assignment, you will then be in regular contact with the assigned Regional Supervisor.

Summer Program Descriptions

Summer Program Descriptions

The MFLC program supports a variety of summer programs and camps offered to service members and their families. The counselor participates in the program alongside the participants and summer program staff and camp counselors. They make themselves available for one on one or family short-term counseling as needed. Operation Purple Camps are traditional camps for any children of service member families of the four branches MFLCs serve including the National Guard and Reserves. Operation Purple Family Retreats provide military families with the opportunity to reconnect –as a family. Activities at these camps which typically last two to three days include climbing, hiking, canoeing, bonding, and eating together. The Operation Purple Healing Adventures program celebrates rediscovering family-fun and togetherness after an injury and counselors typically offer support for two to three days. Operation Military Kids offers a variety of traditional summer camps for the children of Army and Army Reserve soldiers. Some of these camps specialize in supporting children of deployed soldiers. These camps, typically lasting 5 to 10 days in length, are very active with hiking, swimming, rafting, archery, ropes courses, climbing and other group activities. The MFLC CYB Counselor will need to be prepared to participate along with the campers in these activities. National Guard Camps are traditional summer camps for children of National Guard members and typically last 1 to 2 weeks. MFLC CYB counselors participate along with children in hiking, swimming, rafting, archery, ropes courses, climbing, and other types of traditional camp activities. The MFLC CYB will need to be able to participate along with the children.
