Special Operations Wounded Warriors year round retreats provide a unique opportunity for fellow service members to come together in a no pressure environment. The retreats are designed to allow relaxation and camaraderie between the individuals. This by nature will foster communication and open dialogue, and allow for a self-assessment of themselves.
SOWW also hosts other family retreats in direct support of our warriors and there loving Family members.
SOWW members are on hand at each retreat to provide any support needed for individuals. The support does not end with the retreat. In fact, it is only the beginning as we coordinate any requested support through SOWW and our partner programs.
Below is a list of retreats SOWW has hosted and offers. The type and schedule of retreats may vary from year to year.
