Patriot Point provides a relaxing and safe environment to enjoy outdoor recreational activities for our nation’s wounded, ill and injured service members and their families.
The vision of Patriot Point was to create a place where service members could come together, talk, relax, help them to heal, have them get away from things for a weekend, enjoy the camaraderie of being around other wounded soldiers. It is somewhere they are able to talk without being judged, getting things off their chests, learning to adapt to their injuries and to move on with their lives.

Patriot Point did this for me. I killed my first duck there and so did my son, also my lab retrieved her first duck there as well. Patriot Point has so much to offer. In my 11 years of going there I have never heard any of the soldiers ever complain— the only complaint they had was when they left.

At Patriot Point, our nation’s heroes are able to reconnect with their families and their caregivers, decompress after a deployment, or just take some time to rejuvenate.
Situated on 290 acres of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, fronting two pristine waterways and just a short distance from the Chesapeake Bay, Patriot Point has one thing in mind: Creating a destination for those who have valiantly served our nation so that they can recharge, refresh and rejuvenate away from the stresses and challenges of their everyday lives.
Let’s face it: The world is a dangerous place. We are fortunate to call the United States our home. Our service members face daunting challenges abroad while they work to maintain our safety and security. These courageous men and women have earned our gratitude with their selfless work. Patriot Point is one way for us to give back to them.
