Boulder Crest Retreat Virginia opened in September 2013. The 37 idyllic and historic acres were first surveyed by George and John Washington, camped on by Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers, lived on by Native Americans, and now host approximately 700 modern-day Warriors and their family members each year. Like Arizona, the land is a true Warrior's paradise, and the stories of those who roamed both properties is a potent reminder that Warriors have long-used times of struggle to create deep strength and growth.
The Retreat is open to combat veterans (defined as anyone who deployed to a war zone) from any generation and conflict, and is proud to welcome active-duty, reserve and National Guard personnel, veterans and family members, to include Gold Star families, and first responders.
On our 37 acres, you will find:
- Four cabins that each sleep up to six people
- A lodge that can accommodate large group gatherings and outside events
- A seven-lane archery range with 3-D targets
- A labyrinth
- A tipi
- Walking trails
- Outdoor exercise area
- A children's playground
- A fishing pond
- Heroes Garden: the nation's second handicapped-accessible walled garden
In addition, Boulder Crest Retreat Virginia is located within minutes of the historic Appalachian Trail and the Shenandoah River, where guests can hike, kayak, canoe, and fish.
