At Boulder Crest Retreat, we consider every member of a combat veteran's family to be a hero. Each member of these families makes considerable sacrifices in support of our nation's military and the freedoms that we all cherish. To that end, we focus our programs on the entire family, in recognition of the stresses and challenges caused by lengthy deployments and the visible and invisible wounds of war.
Our Family Retreat program is designed to provide combat veterans and their families, as well as Gold Star families, with the time, space and opportunity to take a breath, enjoy valuable time together and prepare for the future with a renewed sense of hope, resilience and strength. During their time at the Retreat, guests can avail themselves of a wide range of activities including archery, time with Clayton and Gabriel (our retired thoroughbred horses), kayaking the Shenandoah River, walking the labyrinth, hiking the Appalachian Trail, playing on the children's playground, fishing and enjoying the local sights and sounds, to include Washington D.C.
Combat veterans and their families are able to stay, for free, in our cabins for 2-7 nights. Each family is eligible for one stay each calendar year. Cabins become available four months in advance for booking, and are released on the final working day of each month. To book a cabin today, visit our Reservations page.
