VHF community events are social and educational gatherings that occur throughout the year. These events bring together the Virginia inherited bleeding disorders community and are an excellent opportunity for networking, support, increasing knowledge, and for fun for all ages. These programs are designed for VHF constituents (and their immediate family and/or household members only) lunch will be provided and there is no fee to attend.
What to Expect: A picnic style lunch, games, education, networking with new and old friends, and plenty of time to enjoy the park, swimming beach and lake (we have reserved a private shelter and it is 250 feet from the swimming beach, fishing pier and boat rental house and will be available until 7 pm).
Bear Creek Lake State Park is nestled in the heart of the Cumberland State Forest in central Virginia, Bear Creek Lake is less than an hour west of Richmond. It’s the perfect getaway for the outdoor enthusiast. Activities center on the 40-acre lake with a boat launch, fishing pier, boat rentals and a swimming beach. Other attractions include a meeting facility, cabins, camping, picnicking, an archery range and playgrounds. Guests also enjoy the park’s trails and access to the adjoining 16,000-acre Cumberland State Forest, including the 14-mile Cumberland Multi-use Trail, which is available for hiking, biking and horseback riding.
