HARTFORD, Conn. - A soldier surprised his 9-year-old son at summer camp and the moment was magical.

Ethan Christensen was called up to participate in a magic show at YMCA’s Camp Indian Valley in Connecticut, ABC News reported.

He was a great sport as the magician had him try on different hats during the act. The magician gave him a military hat and asked Ethan to give it to his "new assistant" standing behind him.

When Ethan realized the assistant was his dad, Major Timothy Christensen, he jumped into his arms.

Major Christensen had been in Afghanistan for more than a year, ABC News reported. He also surprised his daughter Emily at the camp.
