Camp Healing Waters is designed to address not only the physical and emotional healing needs of its participating veterans and their spouses but also introduce training on life skills necessary to deal with the long term challenges that these disabled heroes and their families face. Special topics like, nutrition, personal finance, stress management, and communication skills, will be integrated into a curriculum that capitalizes on the depth and experience of the local volunteer and professional community, all while emphasizing the formidable impact of the area’s pristine outdoor landscape and blue ribbon trout waters.
Jeremy Barnes, CFO of Appalachian Mountain Brewery, and Army Airborne veteran knows all too well how quickly challenges for these disabled soldiers can mount up. “Camp Healing Waters is more than just a fishing outing. It’s a chance for these men and women to spend some time with people that understand the challenges they face and learn more about certain skills that can help them in their day to day lives. We want it to be more than just about fishing we want it to be about family.”
There will be a Camp Kickoff event on April 16th at Camp Sky Ranch in Blowing Rock NC. The event will start at 6pm. Music by HandleBar Betty and food and drink provided by Farm to Flame Woodfired Street Food and Appalachian Mountain Brewery. No cover charge but donations much appreciated.
The inaugural Camp Healing Waters will be held May 19th-22nd. For additional help please contact:
