WOUNDED WARRIOR FALL FAMILY RETREAT/BOOT CAMP
(By Invitation Only)
This unique experience will not only be an enjoyable camping retreat, but serves a dual purpose for therapeutic collaboration between Wounded Warriors and STRIDE youth-athletes with special needs. Each Wounded Warrior is paired as a mentor to a STRIDE youth-athlete with a similar disability in a three day camping weekend at the SCORE Center (STRIDE'S Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education). They are introduced as e-mail "pen-pals" before camping together. Meals, general camping gear, gifts and assistance in transportation costs are provided to all participants.
STRIDE will be using our new SCORE Center for programs and activities with Wounded Warriors.
