Welcome to the Home Base Adventure Series

Camp Woodstock YMCA Family Retreat
Date: 09/13/2019 - 2:00 PM


Join us for a weekend retreat for veterans, current service members, and families at the beautiful Camp Woodstock in Woodstock, Connecticut brought to you by the Home Base Program and New England Adventures!

This is a free weekend filled with all your favorite camp activities as you spend the weekend on the shores of Black Pond. In addition to campfire S’mores, all other meals and lodging will be included. The weekend will be a chance for you and your family to spend time with each other and to get know other military families while exploring all that Camp Woodstock has to offer from arts and crafts to archery and rockclimbing to spending time on the waterfront. There are no fees associated with this event.

Due to the nature of the camp, lodging will be in the cabins scattered around the grounds of the facility. If you and your family would be comfortable sharing a cabin with another family, please indicate below. In addition, if you know of another family attending that you would like to share a cabin with, please enter their name below. 

If you and your family are confirmed for this event, there will be more information to follow but if you are added to the waitlist, please email Grady Foster gfoster4@mgh.harvard.edu to indicate whether or not you'd like to be kept on the waitlist for backup. Once on this list, you may receive a confirmation as late as a few days before the event.

Thank you for your interest in the Home Base Adventure Series!

The Adventure Series provides Veterans, Service Members, and their Families with access to free activities throughout New England, offering opportunities to strengthen family bonds before, during and after military deployment. Whether exploring new sports, learning a new skill, or just providing a fun outing, these events allow Military Families to learn more about Home Base's clinical services, research, and educational programs, all while to spending quality time together and meeting other Military Families in the area. These opportunities are a result of the collaborative efforts of Home Base and local businesses, non-profits, and community organizations throughout New England. From all of us to you, it's our own unique way of saying, "Thank you for your service." 


We ask that if you have registered for an event and cannot attend that you inform the event coordinator at least 48 hours prior to the event. Not showing up to an event harms the program in several ways. First, it takes a spot away from an individual or family hoping to participate in that event. Second, it can potentially hurt our relationship with the partnering agencies who offer these events free of charge. We appreciate your help on this matter and look forward to many fun events together! Failure to notify the event coordinator will result in your name being put on a blacklist for future Adventure Series events for the next year.


Warm Regards,

The Home Base Veteran Outreach Team
