What We Do
Eagle Rock Camp is a family saving, suicide prevention organization that serves at-risk veteran and military families. We host our families at weeklong, therapeutic retreats that help them reconnect with their families and communities and teach them a new way to heal from the moral and spiritual wounds of war. We make miracles happen. Sometimes they happen around a campfire. IMPACT OF COVID 19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: HOW WE ARE IMPACTED: Veteran and military families are already at a 150% higher risk of death by suicide than civilian counterparts. Combine that with isolation, fear, uncertainty about the future you have an increase in mental health issues, financial stress, family abuse, family abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, neglect of children, financial stress and a higher than normal risk of death by suicide. HOW YOU CAN HELP: Financial Donations: Make a one-time gift or join our Hero Club for as little as $4.95.

We have a database ready and waiting for you to search! Program delivery - We are revamping our program delivery and need additional expertise to help design new ways to reach our veteran families. With sudden changes in how we are able to interact with our constituents, we are seeking out ways to deliver in a virtual environment.
