EMERGE Curacao


Join Operation Ward 57, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and our partner TourrificVIP, in developing our newest program

EMERGE Curaçao



This new program will send Service Members, Veterans, First Responders, LEO, Gold Star Members, and their families to the beautiful Island of Curacao in the Dutch Caribbean for an exceptional retreat opportunity.

Our intent is to deliver an unforgettable experience of relaxation, connection, and education through a healing reset they so deserve. Our objective is to share the island through its beauty, tranquility, peacefulness, fun, amazing culture, and community. We aim to help them, and their loved ones rebuild the connectivity of mind/body/soul, renew relationships, create new peer support networks, promote reintegration within their community and encourage service to others.

The EMERGE retreat selects four (4) couples and presents an opportunity of a peer-driven community in a small, intimate and safe environment where participants can share stories and experiences, find an opportunity for healthy release/refocus/rebuilding, learn practical skills, and focus on true Inner Peace; all in an area conducive to this type of healing.

This experience is not psychotherapy, nor filled with endless workshops or classes, but instead are stress free, intention-driven activities in a lively, beautiful, and culturally historic destination. The environment is so tranquil, it forces the busiest minds silent and present.

This all-inclusive retreat is thoughtfully designed through a collaboration with Veterans, Veteran Service Organizations, Therapists and a Neurologist in an evidence-based approach to ensure every aspect is integrated to provide the maximum benefit and address the whole person. These retreats are provided at no cost to attendees.
