2nd Annual Camp Reveille “Rest and Recharge” Caregiver Getaway Contest
Being a caregiver is a tough task. With over 65 million caregivers in the U.S. providing care for loved ones, it’s important that we take the time to honor and reward their love and dedication.
A Place for Mom is recognizing female caregivers across the country by entering them to win a four day and three night (August 21-24, 2014) “girl getaway” at Camp Reveille in Naples, Maine.
Although men and women caregivers are both hardworking and deserving, this contest recognizes female caregivers currently caring for a senior loved one, as part of Joan Lunden’s Camp Reveille Mission to be a unique getaway where women can re-energize, refresh and relax.
If selected as the winner, a caregiver can choose one female friend or family member to attend camp and camp programs with her, and we’ll take care of airfare and the stay at camp.
Camp Reveille hosts a number of fun activities and programs, including:
- Dance Classes
- Fitness Classes
- Movie Nights
