At Veterans Creed Outdoors, we believe in the healing power of nature and the great outdoors. With over 20% of veterans suffering from PTSD, depression, and other mental health disorders, it’s important to provide them with opportunities for physical activity, camaraderie, and adventure. We understand that the transition from military or being an emergency responder to civilian life can be challenging, and it’s our mission to support to support them as they navigate this next chapter of their lives.

"As a veteran myself, I understand the importance of camaraderie and the healing power of nature. That's why we founded Veterans Creed Outdoors, to provide a space for those who have served to come together and experience the outdoors in a safe and supportive environment. We owe it to our veterans and first responders to do everything we can to support them as they reintegrate into civilian life." 
- President Aaron Berger
