Camp Resilience, the Lakes Region-based veterans support nonprofit group recently conducted its 30th session for veterans from throughout New England. The monthly sessions consist of three to four day retreats for veterans suffering from the often invisible wounds of war and military service.

The 30th session was unique in that it was comprised of 100 percent female veterans.

During their four day stay at the Gunstock Inn, the women engaged in problem solving, team-building exercises, a winter hike, life-skills seminars, a mindful eating class, skiing and a vision workshop entitled “Define the Life You’d Love to Live” led by local Life Coach Emily Clement, a frequent volunteer speaker at Camp Resilience sessions.

A highlight of each day is the end-of-day unscripted and informal discussions enabling all the veterans to open up and communicate their issues to their colleagues. For more information about the work of Camp Resilience and how you can help, simply go to prli.us.
