"[Needs] can't be met by the Pentagon, [and] it can't be met by the VA," Mullen said. "It can only be met, I believe, by communities throughout the country joined together with the Pentagon and VA to get it right for those who've sacrificed so much." 
Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ~ Columbia University, 20 April 2010

Veterans Camp - For Veterans and families who have experienced the stress of deployment during past and current conflicts.

Dear Veterans: We thank you for your service to our nation by offering you and your family a stress-free week-long program at our Veterans Family Camp. We want you to relax, have fun and reconnect with your family and other veterans. Eat good food, sleep like a baby, and build great memories. Come to our camp and enjoy a variety of fun, entertaining and challenging indoor and outdoor activities. All free of charge.

Sign up online and show up in person. Click for directions to our camp in mid-coast Maine [directions]. Our experienced staff is waiting to ensure that you and your family have a great week.

Kieve has developed this opportunity for veterans in consultation with the military and its colleagues. This program is endorsed by Matt Flavin, President Obama’s advisor on veterans’ affairs.

Kieve is a non-profit founded in 1926 and is sponsoring this opportunity for veterans thanks to generous donations made by individuals who are deeply appreciative of our veterans.

We are also partnering with Embrace A Vet which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to proving direct and supportive services to Maine Veterans and their families living with post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury. Take a look at their site Embrace A Vet and join the EAV team for a retreat at our Kennedy Learning Center on Damariscotta Lake.

Here are our Fundraisers.
