The Veteran Get Away Program is part of Wildrock's On Solid Ground Program promoting nature connection as a path for greater health and happiness. This program welcomes veteran families with kids ages 18 and under to come for a Saturday afternoon of fun on the playscape and trails, followed by a food truck dinner, evening campfire games and activities, s'mores, star gazing, and tent camping. In the morning there is time for more play on the playscape before departing at 11:00am. The retreats create an exciting opportunity for kids to build happy memories with parents and to meet other families who have experienced a family member's deployment.
Veteran volunteers and social workers knowledgeable about community resources and common needs of returning soldiers and their families will be welcoming participants. Program leaders understand the common stress reactions veterans and their families may face following deployments. Retreats are free of charge to any veteran (regardless of type of service or discharge) thanks to a generous grant from the 4TW5K Run. To get more information or to register, contact us.
