Programs and Events

Summer Program

Wounded warriors and their families participate in rock climbing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, zip lining, fly-fishing, and bowling. Family meals and bonding time promote emotional and mental healing. Activities and a wellness day provide coping mechanisms that outlast the Program.

Winter Programs

Wounded warriors and their families are offered four days of winter outdoor adaptive ski/snowboard instruction along with family meals, group social opportunities and beneficial family bonding time. Wounded warriors receive private, all-day certified adaptive ski/snowboard instruction. Family members of all ages receive group ski/snowboard lessons, childcare (if needed) as well as organized evening family activities that provide time to share their experiences.

Program Highlights

All programs are 100% free to wounded warriors, their families, guests, and military medical hospital staff.

During winter programs, wounded warriors receive all-day, private ski and snowboard instruction from PSIA (Professional Ski/Snowboard Instructors Association) certified adaptive instructors. And in summer, professionally trained guides provide summer outdoor recreational therapy.

Participants are supported by VVP Ambassadors and staff during and after program events.

Events are intimate, assisting wounded warriors and their families in finding their “new normal” and building community of mutual support that outlasts the programs.
