Free to all veterans and active duty personnel with physical disabilities
Sporting camps are a Maine tradition and late August is one of the best times for outdoor recreation and relaxation. Since 2006 Veterans No Boundaries has hosted dozens of veterans, active duty personnel, and their families each August for a weekend at camp filled with exciting and rewarding adaptive recreation opportunities. The program often includes:
All activities, lodging, accommodations and meals are provided free of charge throughout the four-day event, and participants are free to choose activities based on their own interests and energy levels throughout the weekend. While we can also help with local transportation between program sites and to/from the Portland Jetport and Transportation Center (bus and train), all travel to/from Maine is the responsibility and at the expense of the participant.
After the 2014 Veterans No Boundaries program a new participant said “As many disabled veterans are apt to do, I isolate a lot. I found the comradery, support, and encouragement during the VNB event uplifting and freeing from my customary doldrums. I made friends that I know I’ll never forget, and hopefully I’ll have opportunities to reconnect with some of them.”
Join Maine Adaptive at Camp Wavus, Jefferson, Maine for a complete Summer recreation experience.
