Adventure Series for Veterans and Families

In adherence to stay-at-home orders, business closures, and social distancing requirements, our Adventure Series Events in 2021 will be held virtually. We look forward to seeing you online!

Join other Veterans and their Families for FREE activities to strengthen family bonds before, during, and after military deployment. Veterans and Families may explore a new sport, meet other Veterans and Military Families, and learn more about the clinical services, education, and research offered by Home Base. Home Base collaborates with businesses and non-profit community organizations throughout New England who host the Adventure Series activities. Past activities include skiing, skating, and museum visits in the winter and sailing, attending baseball games, and other sports in the summertime. Events are open to both adaptive and able-bodied participants.
