Bonfire Adventure Retreats
Our signature multi-day retreat events incorporate recreational and group therapies. These events encompass activities designed to foster camaraderie, physical achievements, and an overall healthy mindset. The groups are comprised of six Purple Hearts, either active duty or non-active duty men and women service members. Our events and members are nationwide. Activities include, but not limited to, hunting, fishing, skiing, surfing, horseback riding, caving, whitewater rafting, and hiking. Each event includes our Bonfire American Flag Retirement Ceremony in honor of our fallen brothers and sisters.Learn More
Strong Heart Spouses Retreats
Our spouses' retreats are full of rest and relaxation to help energize and motivate our most treasured caregivers of our modern-day heroes. These women have an opportunity to listen and learn from each other, with the ultimate goal of finding support. Many of our veterans have asked for help to find ways to repay their spouses and we are working to answer their call. If you are a spouse of a post 9/11 Purple Heart Veteran, please sign up here to enjoy one of our weekends.Learn More
Strong Hearts Couples Retreats
Retreats designed for couples to promote stronger relationships for the Veteran and their partner in life. These retreats follow the same structure as our Bonfire Adventure Retreats but with focus on time spent together. Many experience similar struggles in their relationships and again being around those that understand can help bring clarity, understanding and positive change. These retreats are currently for our Bonfire Alumni until the program grows further.
Bonfire Warriors are those Purple Hearts that have attended multiple Bonfire Adventure Retreats and have identified to us that they are ready to help their military brothers that are struggling in various ways or to assist the Warrior Bonfire Program organization. As a Bonfire Warrior, these men and women are trained to lead Bonfire Adventure Retreats, organize new retreats, represent the organization as speakers, network for the organization, fundraise for the organization, serve on our Board of Directors/Operations Board or provide ongoing peer to peer support for other members. Our Bonfire Warriors see this as a new way to serve their country and fellow service members.
Jammin' At The Bonfire
Jammin' At The Bonfire - our version of music therapy, organized in Jackson, MS and Denver, CO with local musicians and the V.A. Medical Centers. Once a month our volunteer musicians create a jam session at various facilities. If you are a musician and interested in bringing this to your area VA please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We know we can't get everyone out to a Bonfire so we are bringing it to them. Music therapy works every time! No reservations required!Contact Us
Campfires are events that are offered to the Warrior Bonfire Program that do not fall in the direct scope of our Bonfire Adventures program. These can be opportunities offered to one or many Purple Heart Veterans within a local community such as, special events, hunting or fishing opportunities, sporting event tickets, financial assistance or anything that a donor would like to offer as a gift for the Veterans service to our nation. If you have a something to offer please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.Contact Us
