Camp F.A.C.E.S. PTSD Family Retreats

Camp F.A.C.E.S. PTSD Family Retreats offer a harmonious blend of structure and choice, providing you and your family the opportunity to play, relax, rediscover, learn, and connect with other families.

Upon arrival in the late afternoon, you'll have just enough time to settle in and meet fellow families before indulging in a delicious dinner. The evening unfolds with games, a campfire, and delectable snacks, while late-night programming provides optional ways to unwind at your own pace.

Each morning presents the option to join a reflective session and/or embark on a refreshing nature walk, indulge in yoga or gentle stretching, followed by a sumptuous breakfast.

The morning and afternoon program sessions cater to a diverse age range, featuring activities such as fishing, swimming, arts and crafts, wellness sessions, and more. Younger children are accompanied to age-appropriate programs, while older kids and teens have the option to participate independently. Should you desire free time for napping or family hangouts, all sessions remain optional.

Post-dinner, engage in camp-wide activities that get families moving, including snacks, campfires, games, and even a talent show where you and your children can showcase your favorite talents or songs, reveling in lighthearted moments together.

Optional late-night programming caters to parents seeking a relaxing campfire experience. On the last day, before packing up and savoring lunch, seize the opportunity for one final round of activities, ensuring a culmination of family fun and enduring memories.
