FREE babysitting for Military & Veteran families
While the Champsitting service is provided to all military and veteran families, priority is given to the following families:
Families with a Wounded, Injured, or ill Servicemember
Families with a Deployed Servicemember
Families in transition (i.e., PCSing, medical retirement, etc.)
Families welcoming a Servicemember home
Families who have lost a Servicemember (Gold Star Families)
Operation CHAMPS’ Champsitters are high school and college students who volunteer their time and energy to give back to military and veteran families in this unique way. Each Champsitter has been hand selected from the thousands of applicants, and has undergone the following screening and training procedures:
Oriented in Military 101 & Military Cultural Competence
Trained in Champsitting Best Practices
Certified in CPR & First Aid
To this end, all Champsitters are reviewed under the final criteria:
1. As a parent, would I feel 100% comfortable leaving my child
alone with this person?
2. As a Champsitter, would I want to Champsit with this
Here at Operation CHAMPS, we aim to enable ambitious and
reliable civilians who want to carry out their attitudes of gratitude to the military and veteran families in their community, and we are able to provide the highest quality of care for all our families by doing so!
While Champsitting is solely being offered to families in the DC Metropolitan area at the moment, with help from the community we aim to provide this service nationwide in no time!

“I’ve NEVER had such great babysitters, and to get that great of a service for free is unheard of.”
“…Just wanted to comment and let you know the champsitters did an AMAZING job!!! It's great that we canleave for an event (in this case a wounded warrior event) and know that our kids will have as much (if not more) fun then us. They did an amazing job. All they could talk about the rest of the weekend was how the male Champsitter played superman and spiderman with them. Thanks!!”
“I just wanted to let you know how awesome the Champsitters were with our boys.”
“One of your Champsitters even wrote a note for one of our sons in his school folder. He was so happy and said how much fun he had. It was weird not paying them for such a great care.”
“I just can’t say enough about them. Every time my husband called this week I told him how great the service and wish I could hire them. Thanks again for providing this service.
