Camp Resilience began as a grass-roots, all volunteer organization, and has grown to a fully staffed operation which integrates volunteers into every retreat. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the online application.

Volunteers are the backbone of Patriot Resilient Leader Institute (PRLI).

Without our volunteers we could not continue to run Camp Resilience and serve those who have served.

Volunteer Testimonials

Meeting and spending time with these amazing veterans has been humbling and rewarding. They have been so appreciative of the retreats and of the people who have come to help out. People grow close through sharing their experiences and the activities and It is sad when the time is quickly over. I’ve loved seeing some return for another retreat! This is such an important, worthwhile, appreciated and rewarding volunteer opportunity!

– Sandy McLaughlin, volunteer

I’ve volunteered for many organizations, but this is by far the best experience I’ve had. Giving my time to men and women who have given us all so much is an honor and privilege. The instant bond and respect among the veterans at every retreat is amazing. PRLI is such a positive experience for them and for me. I love being part of the sports activities and just getting an opportunity to talk with the veterans, they’re always so positive and appreciative of this experience.
