Our Mission

Camp Resilient offers outdoor experiences to build more resilient service members, veterans, and their families. 

Our Shared Vision

Resilient Service Members, Veterans, and Families 

across our Nation. 

Why Camp Resilient?

The needs of the military family are unique, specific, and currently underserved. We are committed to building access to the resources needed to fill the gap in care and attention for the military family as a whole to recover, build, and maintain the resilience necessary for each member of the family’s service lifecycle and future. 

How we define RESILIENCE

The human capacity and ability to survive, recover, grow and thrive.

 According to the definition of Psychological Resilience: Psychological resilience is the ability to mentally or emotionally cope with a crisis or to return to pre-crisis status quickly. Resilience exists when the person uses “mental processes and behaviors in promoting personal assets and protecting self from the potential negative effects of stressors”.

 

Our Guiding Principles

-Competency : Be professional and honor evidence based practices. 

-Connection : The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued. 

-Community : Above all, we invite, create, support and serve community connection. 

-Collaboration : We believe in collaboration, not competition. We welcome those that can help our military community.

“I like to go outside, go outdoors, go for a walk, go for hikes, sit around a bonfire, talk to other friends who have been through this and who struggle with PTS. That’s been a very useful one. I still live in a military area around a base, so there’s a lot of people that are struggling with the same issues. So really linking up with them. Talking, not about the issues, but just talking, just being around someone else who you know is gone through the same things, thinks about the same issues. We will keep an eye on each other and check on each other and just spend time together. It’s somebody who understands. If you bring up something you want to talk about, they get it. Those are the ways that I deal with those stresses.”
