In January of 2013 Joel & Crista Lavenson leamed up with wounded veterans and a non-profit organization to help create a vacation home away from home for wounded warriors and their families.
Through the amazing support of the community we were able to renovate 5 living quarters, our Camp Lodge, the Dining Hall and the Waterfront to become completely ADA Accessible and ready for Campers.
VETERAN FAMILY CAMP
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Our first week of camp went amazingly well and interest has grown immensely toward trying to increase the amount of weeks we can offer to these American Heroes.
Joel has a special passion for helping Veterans as a veteran himself (US Army 66 -72 and nephew of George Lavenson one of the original Band of Bothers) and therapist who specializes in helping veterans with PTSD and their families in the readjustment process. Joel has had the same dream as his uncle for veterans.
We can now offer two Veterans Family Camp Weeks
Dates to be announced.
