VALOR Retreat at High Rock
Giving back to those who have given so much by providing a tranquil respite for combat veterans and their families.
Veterans Are Loved Owed Respected
The exclusive purpose of VALOR Retreat at High Rock is to provide a free recreational facility for combat veterans and their families to provide a tranquil environment to recover from the ravages of conflict and reconnect with nature, their families, and themselves.
A Peaceful Setting
The retreat sits on a 197 acre private reserve in Hocking Hills, Ohio. The property provides beautiful landscapes, rock formations, abundant hiking trails, fishing, solitude and is within a ten minute drive from Old Man’s Cave, Ash Cave and Cedar Falls.
We plan to raise $2 Million for the construction of the retreat. Our goal is to construct four handicap accessible cabins and a lodge by 2021 and be fully operational by 2022. To help us make our vision a reality, please consider donating today.
Due to the abundance of unique Black Hand sandstone, weathering and natural erosion over millennia has resulted in fantastic rock formations and scenic features all throughout the Hocking Hills area. The area is known locally for its beautiful trails, majestic waterfalls, and dramatic cliff faces. We feel that the Hocking Hills area provides a beautiful, tranquil setting for veterans to begin to heal from wounds visible and invisible.
