In early 2019, Wisconsin Adventures on Wheels (WAW) was donated to the Highground and renamed “Camp Victory.”
The development of Camp Victory, located in West-Central Wisconsin on 295-acres of primarily wooded land, has taken over 20 years. Many resources and thousands of hours of donated time and expertise have been provided. Camp Victory’s original, primary purpose was to reach out to physically challenged civilian and veteran families and individuals to provide outdoor experiences free of charge.
In 2013, Camp Victory decided to focus on another group – disabled and PTSD-affected Veterans and their families. We began hosting multiple Veterans groups for reunions, camping, archery turkey, and archery deer hunts.
Today, we continue to provide hunting opportunities, camping, and retreat options for Veteran groups. Camping and lodging at Camp Victory are currently only open to Veterans groups. Local school day field trips are encouraged for educational purposes.
Nature plays a crucial role in how Veterans cope with physical and emotional issues, so to Camp Victory, these Veterans and their families have become a new category of users for us. WELCOME Veterans and families!
The mission of Camp Victory is to facilitate veterans’ emotional healing in the outdoors. The camp’s environment and activities promote fellowship, community, and new relationships.
