TOGETHER, WE HEAL
Our Mission is to create a therapeutic, recreational, and educational retreat for our nation's U.S. armed forces and their families, using outdoor wilderness activities in Maine and natural habitats to help participants share common challenges related to their service and sacrifice in protecting our nation's freedom and democratic ideals.
Thanks to your generosity, we are able to provide FREE outdoor retreats to our service members and their families. Your contribution and support may change, or save, a veteran's life. Get involved today.
We offer outdoor retreats for active duty military, veterans, and their family members, in the great wilderness of Maine. Activities include hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, nature tours, campfires, swimming, and wildlife identification and spotting.
THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Your program is an excellent example of Mainers working together to fill an unmet need in our State. The servicemen and women who have dedicated themselves to defending our freedom overseas face a unique set of challenges when returning home to civilian life. These veterans - and their families- deserve our full support in this time of transition, and House in the Woods is clearly committed to these goals."
— Governor, Paul LePage, State of Maine
