Re-Boot Camp® is a program created by Idaho Horse Therapy. The program is an exciting new treatment opportunity for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The camp is offered in Fairfield, Idaho at the base of Soldier Mountain. Lodging, food and snacks are provided for the veterans during their week-long intensive treatment program, using proven and evidenced-based methods. This service is provided at no cost and is completely supported by donations. When providing them with these new skills and treatments, they are able to address post-traumatic stress disorder to improve their lives and their families.

At the camps, a one-week intensive therapeutic retreat, participants will establish camaraderie, share meal time together and receive up to six hours of therapy per day. Re-Boot Camp can be done anywhere in the United States. Participants have reported more than 40 percent of improvement in their psychological well-being from beginning to end of their rehabilitation. The average improvement percentage is upwards of 70 percent increase.

“After my husband’s first session, I saw dramatic changes. My husband is dealing with his PTSD better than I could have ever hoped for. He is more active, more happy, sleeps better, engages the kids more often and more positively. This program has given us the light at the end of the tunnel,” said Mirinda Climer, military spouse.
