In 2019, Wisconsin Adventures on Wheels (WAW) was donated to The Highground and renamed “Camp Victory”. The information posted prior to 2020 will include the name WAW. Information from 2020 and on will be under the auspices of Camp Victory.
Camp Victory, previously known as Wisconsin Adventures on Wheels (WAW), is a privately funded nonprofit 501(c)(3) development dedicated and designed solely to provide a quality outdoor experience for mobility challenged individuals, Veterans and their families as part of The Highground outside of Neillsville, Wisconsin. Participants are all “FREE of charge” for activities, food and lodging. Currently, individuals must provide transportation to the Camp.
Development of the West Central Wisconsin 295-acres has taken 14 years, many resources and thousands of hours of donated time and expertise. 2013 brought Camp Victory another group and need into focus—Disabled and PTSD-affected Veterans and their families. Camp Victory’s original, primary purpose was reaching out to physically-challenged civilian family units and individuals (clearly defined) in an attempt to provide free outdoor experiences.
Fall 2013 specifically saw Camp Victory reassess its usage parameters and user profile to include multiple Veterans groups for reunions, camping, turkey hunts and deer hunts.
Nature plays a key role in how Veterans cope with physical and emotional issues, so to Camp Victory these Veterans and their family units have become a new category of users. WELCOME Veterans and families!
