What's New at Holbrook Farms Retreat

As we enter our 7th Season (Summer 2020), we’re sending extra thanks to all Survivors for joining our wellness retreats, to the many volunteers & supporters that make them possible, and to our HFR Leadership team who take big dreams and turned them into reality!  New this season, we're expanding to 4 retreats, including our partnership with Camp Cormorant kids camp, our very first Siblings Retreat  (for sisters of the fallen), and the first 9/11 Memorial Run combined with our Alumni Retreat and Community Open House.  We could not do all this without a very talented leadership team and the amazing Detroit Lakes community!  Here's to sharing the gift of wellness with many more Survivors of Heroes in the future! Stay tuned for big news as we look to address our growing waitlist!

May the Peace of the Lake find You...

Every guest that visits the farm reminds us of the importance and health benefits of reconnecting with nature, trying new adventures, finding balance, and doing life together.  May you find those friendships and the place that brings you the most peace and wellness, just like Holbrook Lake does for all of us!

How Can You Help?

We appreciate your support more than ever.  Every time we host a retreat, we are flooded with registration requests and this upcoming season is no different.  For every person who is able to attend a Survivors of Heroes Retreat, there are three more on the waitlist.  Our registration for the upcoming 2020 season has already occurred and the response was remarkable.  Survivors that have never registered or heard of us before, turned out in higher numbers.  We appreciate any kind of support you feel led to offer.  Here are some ways to help. 

Thank you so much for your help.  We could not do this without you. 
  • Donate on our website - 100% of every dollar donated goes to Survivors of Heroes retreats.
  • Purchase something off our Amazon Charity List - these items support our Survivor retreats!    
  • Wear your support!  Now is your chance to purchase a super soft shirt or sweatshirt for you, a partner, or a friend and have it directly support our Survivors of Heroes Retreats.  All proceeds go to the non-profit so every sale helps.  Purchase shirts click here
  • Talk to your employer about corporate match option.
  • For anyone in the military or employed by the DoD, the Combined Federal Campaign is closing soon!  Please consider choosing us as a beneficiary.  Holbrook Farms Retreat’s organization code is 51197; no monthly allotment is too small!
