Cape Cod Veterans News

Families in Transition is an innovative and unique program developed for military families who have an immediate family member deployed or one who has returned from deployment. This five day camp in August brings military families together in a farm setting where they experience the healing qualities of horses while learning how to groom and ride. Families spend time with each other, enjoy planned activities, have conversation over wonderful dinners and meet other families going through some of the same challenges of transitioning through and after deployment. The program is a collaboration of Heroes in Transition, Inc., Military Family Outreach Cape Cod and Smithfield Farm.

Following the two-hour riding rotation, participants will share a sit down dinner with other families and staff. Please check our website for up-coming events, or find us on Facebook.
