[ARCHIVED] Virginia Wounded Warrior Program's Family Retreat

Virginia Wounded Warrior Program is hosting a fun, family-oriented skills building course for military and veteran families coping with the impact of deployment, military service, post traumatic stress, operational stress or traumatic brain injury June 12-14, 2015 in Wakefield, Virginia.

Sacrifices inherent in serving our nation, such as deployments and recovery from both visible and invisible wounds, often take a toll on service members, spouses, and children. This weekend event will help parents and children build communication, conflict resolution, and coping skills to foster resilience among military and veteran families. Parents and school-age children will be participating in both separate and family activities to promote bonding.

Please note: This event will involve group activities and is most appropriate for school-age children or older who can operate in a group environment away from their parents.
