Spiritual Fitness Retreat (formerly known as Personal Growth Retreat)
A weekend retreat for individuals, beginning Friday at 2 p.m. and ending Sunday by 2 p.m.
Participants develop new perspectives in relationships with one's self, others, and one knows to be holy, sacred, and divine.
After participating in a Spiritual Fitness Retreat, Spiritual Fitness Division staff provides follow-up groups and referral services to continue personal/spiritual development beyond the Retreat experience.
Active Duty participants are required to have No-Cost TAD orders to attend the Spiritual Fitness Retreat.
Warrior return Weekend
· A two day retreat for military personnel returning from deployment, Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon.
· Drawing from the Spiritual Fitness Retreat, this retreat specifically includes topics of return/reunion/reintegration, separation, and trauma.
By Request Team Building Workshop
· A four-hour workshop is designed to assist commands, departments, divisions, or work spaces to develop an interdependent and cooperative spirit.
· By reinforcing Navy core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment, participants come away with a better understanding of the Chain of Command, a clearer appreciation of the differences between rank and gender, and respect for personal dignity and diversity.
