In January of 2013 long time camp owners & directors, Joel & Crista Lavenson teamed up with wounded veterans and a local Maine non-profit organization to create a vacation home away from home for wounded warriors and their families at their overnight camp for kids.
After 35 years of life-changing summers, Joel decided to "retier" and focus on his true passion - serving veterans more full time.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
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.
