Families in Transition (FIT)

One of Heroes In Transition’s (HIT’s) longest running programs, Families In Transition (FIT) Camp launched in the summer of 2013, offering military families the opportunity to experience the healing, nonjudgmental nature of horses in a peaceful setting. From that first year, the program has grown from one full week to three full weeks a year. It is offered in June, July, and August at Alliance Equestrian Center in Sandwich.

Families In Transition (FIT) is an innovative program designed for veteran and military families who are dealing with the stressors that can exist within a military family. This 5-day camp brings families together in a setting where they experience the therapeutic qualities of horses, while learning how to groom and ride. Families spend time with each other, participate in planned activities and enjoy wholesome meals.

This program gives families an opportunity to share similar transitional challenges. FIT weeks are offered in the months of July and August and are held in the latter part of the day.

This program is free for individuals who are serving and have served our country and their loved ones.
