2018 CAMP RESILIENCE SESSIONS
Women's-Only Retreat: February 13-16, 2018
In February, we ran our 4th Women's-Only Camp Resilience retreat. This retreat was run by women for women. The veterans learned about communication, financial management, WHAM, and mindful eating. In addition to the life-skills workshops, the veterans also participated in outdoor experiential learning/sports activities such as the Escape Hour House, a winter hike on Pine Mountain, downhill skiing and snowboarding at Gunstock Mountain Resort, yoga, and water aerobics.
Winter Retreat: January 9-12, 2018
We ran a Camp Resilience retreat designed to help veterans with PTSD. This retreat featured iRest, a proven and effective approach to using yoga nidra meditation and deep relaxation techniques to overcome trauma. There were also workshops on coping skills (wellness) for adding more happiness and wellness to one’s life and enhancing one’s resilience. In addition to workshops, the retreat included challenging team-building activities at the Escape Hour House and sports activities like snowshoeing on Pine Mountain, downhill skiing at the Gunstock Mountain Resort, yoga, and water aerobics.
