A unique retreat created
for Gold Star Parents,
by Gold Star Parents.
We offer an all inclusive weekend of healing, connecting, love, and understanding.
We welcome you regardless of branch of service or cause of loss.
Sign up to hear from us about upcoming retreats and events.
These are the memories of our sons and daughters that have paid the ultimate price of Freedom.
We will never forget their sacrifice.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
We begin our weekends with a "Welcome Dinner" and open mic night on Friday, then ease into Saturday with a hearty breakfast and outline of the day's activities. Sundays begin with a casual breakfast then we say "farewell" to our families.
