Summer Therapeutic Outdoor Programs

Summer Family Program (2020 program canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic)

Wounded Veterans and their families build confidence and independence through participation in therapeutic outdoor sports, including rock climbing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, zip-lining, mountain biking, and fly-fishing. Through group meals and evening activities, participants have the opportunity to reconnect with their families and to build relationships with peers experiencing similar challenges in the transition to civilian life after a military service injury. A wellness day, with yoga, meditation, and acupuncture, provides participants with coping mechanisms that long outlast the duration of the program.

Golf in the Rockies (2020 program canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic)

Wounded Veterans benefit from five days of an unforgettable golf experience. Participants play several championship golf courses, attend golf clinics provided by PGA teaching professionals, and connect over group meals and evening activities. This program encourages participants to bond with one another over a shared passion, allowing them to depart the Vail Valley with lifelong friendships and a newly developed community of mutual support.
