What We do

Our mission is to use the sport of golf as a conduit to provide transformational mental health resources and holistic life resource training to veterans with disabilities and first responders.


By donating to Next 18, you are helping our non-profit provide transformational mental health resources through the sport of golf to our veterans and first responders and helping us operate our camps free of charge to those that participate.

Golf Camps

3.5 day golf camps, offered free of charge to veterans with disabilities and first responders.  Next 18 facilitates a golf camp mindset woven with mental health and holistic lifestyle resource modules.  We provide introductions to resources such as yoga, meditation, breathwork, mindfulness and body scans, small group therapy sessions, reiki, journaling and others.

We strive to create a safe environment to bring 10-12 participants together at a time on some of the best golf courses in the country, as we share our traumas and defeat the stigmas of not asking for help, hiding from our emotions, and just “sucking it up”.

While we provide a myriad of resources and training, Next 18 is not capable or responsible for diagnosing and treating both diagnosed and undiagnosed mental health disorders and illnesses.  Our program presents a multitude of resources that we hope our campers will connect with and find helpful post-camp as they navigate a healthier and happier life on their own journeys.
