Veterans Program - Equine Assisted Philosophy

At Campfire Creek, we hold our veterans in high esteem.
We consider it a privilege and honor to come alongside as they
reconnect with family and community after deployment. Sessions
are held in a secluded area on the farm. This ensures a private
setting to think, not think, move around or just take a break.
Our prayer and purpose is to promote healing in the lives of
our amazing veterans and their families.

“ The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a Veteran”
