Recreational outings are the cornerstone of our programming. They are funded, planned and organized by River Deep with and serve a vital role in the healing process. These outings and activities are open to veterans and other individuals who have suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder, or other trauma. Each outing also provides veterans and their families with the opportunity to relax and enjoy the outdoors, network with other veterans and families, experience camaraderie and learn about resources in a supportive environment. River Deep is dedicated to providing the highest quality experiences possible and we work diligently to tailor design events that specifically target the physical, social and emotional needs of our participants.
Opportunties include fishing and hunting adventures, archery, fencing, equine therapy, art classes, cooking classes, family fun days and more!
COVID-19: We have resumed our programs. If you are an outing participant please be sure to respect the specific protocols set forth by those running the activity. Do not attend any events if you feel sick or believe you have been exposed to Covid-19.

River Deep works closely with our alliance members and other partners to invite clients who would benefit from our activities. Some outings are quickly filled through case managers. Other outings are larger and are open to a wider audience. Military Veterans and patient alumni of Craig Hospital are encouraged to contact us if they would like to be informed of open spots for upcoming events. Immediate family members or caregivers are welcome to participate as appropriate for the activity.
I wanted to take a moment to give you and your volunteers a big thanks for all you do! ! The events you set up and the time all of you put in is absolutely amazing! For me, these events are life changing! They mean more then I can put into words! They give me hope to be able to find a way of life after my injuries and my military retirement. You and your team give us purpose to get up and to be a part of something again! Until our next event... many thanks! Lena R.
