Combat Veteran Retreats
VCR hosts four-day retreats to guide combat veterans on the path to healing. Our retreats foster camaraderie through recreation and shared challenges with the goal of turning strangers into brothers and sisters. Activities include ropes courses, kayaking, rock climbing, yoga, whitewater rafting, Native American sweat lodges, archery, boating, and trap shooting. Throughout our retreats, veterans work with trauma clinicians and peer mentors to share effective tools to reintegration and rebuild trust, confidence, and companionship. Each evening, participants gather around a fire circle to explore common postwar readjustment challenges and to share their hardships and successes. Our retreats are founded on proven methods which orient the mind, body, and soul to healing after combat.
