Giving Back to Those who Served
Our multi-day camp on a Damariscotta Lake is a perfect opportunity for rest and relaxation, a welcome break from daily life. The peaceful setting at Camp Kieve Wavus in midcoast Maine allows veterans to find some peace and quiet, and the opportunity to meet others who are also living with the daily life challenges of service-related PTSD and/or TBI. Activities like kayaking, fishing and hiking are offered, and Embrace A Vet volunteers as well as therapeutic professionals are available for those who are interested. Maine veterans with diagnoses of PTSD or TBI may apply, and those attending who have completed our Paws for Peace training program are encouraged to attend with their service dogs.
The Veteran/Canine/Caregiver Retreat is held early fall and is offered at no cost thanks to the generosity of our donors, sponsors and community partners.
