"There are three things we really want the families to accomplish: Number one is we want to give them a recreational rehabilitation," Bob Miller said. "Two is the mental health element which really focuses on family enrichment. And three, we want them to leave with a support network that they may not have had before."

Eight families participated in the Wounded Warriors Family Mountain Experience Program Sept. 12-17. The families took part in team building activities, canoeing and a ropes course on the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center campus before dinner at Carter Park. The program also included camping and rafting on the Colorado River.

In 2008, Bob and Bonnie Miller created The Wounded Warriors Family Ski Week to offer recreational therapy opportunities to soldiers severely wounded in combat operations. The Wounded Warriors Family Mountain Experience was designed for the family who prefers outdoor activities in the mountains without snowsports.
