Women Veterans Retreat

Women Veterans Retreat

How Did the Retreat Go?

This is an action filled weekend that encourages participants to partake as they see fit. Physical accommodations allow all levels of fitness to be engaged. Presenter delivered the material in an understandable friendly manner. The flow of activities and the time allotted was adequate. I recommend this retreat.


Caisse, retreat host was gracious, kind, fun and helpful.

Wonderful program. Will brag about retreat to others. Thank you for all your help and support.


Richard delivered the material in an understandable friendly manner.

An Awesome Journey. Thank you.


All the volunteers, accommodations and food were wonderful! Staff were so warm, loving and a perfect addition to the experience.

This retreat was my first and I truly learned a lot and enjoyed everything and everyone. Taniki was excellent and gave me insight on some things.


I enjoyed this retreat; I am grateful for Project New Hope, and everyone involved in the worthwhile cause. I have received support with my stress issues through Reiki, Yoga, and Bill, you “rock man” you made everyone feel special and I thank you!! Blessings to all of you.

I totally enjoyed myself. The staff was wonderful, helpful, and sincere. They were relentless in ensuring all our needs were met while in attendance. I would recommend for other woman vets.
