Military Couples Retreat
“Military couples face unique challenges whether they were together during active duty and deployments or if they met each other afterward,” said Chris Pettis, Executive Director of The Highground. “We want to help them develop and hone new skills to strengthen their relationships.”
For the Veteran’s partner who experienced active duty and their Veteran’s deployments, they were a part of the process and saw the changes as they happened. For the couple who met after active duty or the deployments, the partner is sometimes oblivious to the process and the effects until the day their Veteran is triggered and their whole world changes in a minute.
The availability of free Veteran couple retreats are on the rise, but still many people shy away from them because they are worried about self-disclosure or embarrassment in a group setting. Operation Re-Connect is structured to provide a calm and supportive environment where couples feel safe to share their experiences and know they are not alone in the challenges they face. Through fun, interactive and insightful activities, couples have the opportunity to strengthen their connection and understanding of one another and their relationship.
Please note: Registration and a $50 registration fee are required; however, the registration fee will be refunded upon arrival. Lodging, meals and workshop supplies are provided for registered couples. Transportation to and from the retreat is not provided.
Space is limited. To register for the retreat or for more information, please email Bonnie at email@example.com or call 715-743-4224.
