Hope and Wellness Retreats Calendar

The Foundation provides support and resources to assist our EOD Warriors and families as they face challenges, changes, and uncertainty in their lives. We help create a network of connection through various retreat opportunities and programs that are updated yearly. These retreats can be recreational, educational, have a focus on mental health, wellness, trauma, and are all holistic in nature.

This meaningful support and assistance through retreats and programs fosters hope and wellness and builds community. If you are a graduate from NAVSCOLEOD, no matter the era, you and your family qualify for these programs! We believe the EOD Family is for life; including EOD Warriors and their families, Gold Star and White Star families; caregivers, children, and siblings. Our goal each year is to provide unique opportunities no matter where you fit into the EOD Family.
