others, A Place for Mom's Annual Caregiver Getaway Contest provides
the opportunity for you and your best girlfriend to attend Joan
Lunden's Camp Reveille in Naples, Maine. The winner will receive a
trip for four days and three nights during the summer. A Place for

caregivers currently caring for a senior loved one. Joan Lunden's
unique getaway gives women the chance to recharge, refresh, and
Camp Reveille's activities include:
- Dance Classes

Why Camp Reveille?
Our 2014 contest winner Debbie Keys shares her experience:

recharged. If you are totally spent in any of these areas,
compensating for the lack only depletes the other areas that much
faster. You can only give away what is yours to give.
When I think of my depleted state of being before Camp
Reveille and my renewed and replenished condition after, I am so
blessed and grateful for the opportunity to have true "me time" and
to be cared for. When I returned home, I had a replenished
abundance of love, patience, and joy to share with my mom as her
caregiver and as her daughter."
