Veteran Retreat
Homeward Bound Adirondacks in collaboration with LHF Veterans Initiative would like to invite you to the first Veteran Retreat of 2023.  The retreat will be March 10-12, 2023 at the Irondequoit Inn in Piseco, NY.  Register now and join us for a weekend of nature therapy in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Meet and recreate with other veterans. During the day you will have the option to take a snowshoe hike, do some ice fishing, participate in Forest Bathing, or just relax at the beautiful Irondequois Inn.   At night, sit by the fire and chat with other veterans discussing topics such as PTSD, MST, and other traumas.
Vets Helping Vets
Veterans build resilience and support networks through peer to peer discussions and activities. Retreats offer an opportunity to build comradery with other Vets while relaxing in a wilderness environment.
