Winter Veterans Retreat 2023

The Highground will host a Winter Veterans Retreat February 3–5, 2023.

This is a retreat weekend that is open to male and female Veterans. The main focus of the retreat is to experience activities that can be done throughout the winter—keep busy, be outdoors and be involved!

The PTSD workshop will not be an in-depth counseling session. It will be a gathering focused on PTS skills based on topics that The Highground covers in our monthly PTS Peer Support Groups such as communication with family & friends, sleep, safety plans and triggers. We will also have a general discussion around managing post-traumatic stress. We will learn skills, gather resources to explore different therapies after the retreat and learn from each other.

The Retreat staff is working on the itinerary now. It will be published here as soon as it’s finalized.

The basic schedule will be:

Friday, Feb. 3: Check-in at 2pm and then snowshoeing, supper and a chocolate-making class at 6pm.
Saturday, Feb. 4: Ice fishing, a PTSD workshop, free time for snowshoeing, an art workshop and more.
Sunday, Feb. 5: Breakfast and free time at The Highground.

This retreat is limited to 10 Veterans and registration is required. Please confirm you would like to attend and mail in the $30 refundable fee as soon as you can. Call Theresa at 715-743-4224 or email to museum@thehighground.us

The Highground is located at W7031 Ridge Rd, Neillsville, WI 54456.
