EDICCIMAD! Every Day in Camden County is Military Appreciation Day!
MWR can provide your organization with a unique opportunity to market your company and its product and services to an exclusive military population. Both direct advertising opportunities and event sponsorship provide your organization with a full promotional mix to gain exposure and potential market share. Commercial sponsorship and advertising is an authorized way for Navy MWR activities to offset the cost of programs and services. Sponsorship is received in the form of in-kind services and financial support in exchange for public recognition, advertising consideration and/or product promotion at MWR events. All revenues generated through sponsorship and advertising help improve the quality of life of service members and their families at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.
MWR is a National Recreation and Parks Gold Medal Winning Program. The department is also accredited through both the Commission for Accreditation of Parks and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and the Commander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) Accreditation Program.
