Welcome to Camp Valor Outdoors

Camp Valor Outdoors seeks to recognize and honor ill, injured, and wounded members of the military (active duty, retired, and veterans) and their families through adaptive and competitive activities such as guided fishing, hunting, shooting, archery, 4-wheeling, or just simply relaxing around the campfire. All branches of the military services, from any generation, are welcome at Camp Valor Outdoors. We understand the hurdles that veterans and their families face after military service, particularly with injuries and illnesses. Warriors are never alone on the battlefield and shouldn't be alone when they come back home. Healing in the great outdoors with Camp Valor Outdoors and reconnecting with fellow warriors is therapeutic. 

 

Our mantra is One Team - One Fight!

 

Camp Valor Outdoors began with one retired Marine who simply wanted to make a difference in the lives of warriors and reduce the veteran suicide rate. That one person has grown to an organization with hundreds of volunteers, none of which are getting paid. In addition to the many hunting and fishing events, Camp Valor Outdoors rolled out a Competitive Shooting Team that participates in local, state, regional and national level high-power competitions. We plan to grow into other shooting sports such as pistol and 3-gun.

 

Most events consist of one guide for every warrior. The guide will show and teach the warrior the intricacies of that event so the warrior leaves with the knowledge base and the motivation to get out and try it again with another battle buddy or family member. We take all safety precautions before and during, as well as provide all of the equipment necessary to be successful at our events. Warriors who are more experienced, avid outdoorsmen, who want to get involved, are encouraged to volunteer as a guide.

 

Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors, donors, and volunteers, we can host these events at no cost to the warriors. We have an active fundraising program to allow these expenses to be covered for military participants. We cover airfare, lodging, meals, permits and licenses, as well as provide all of the necessary equipment for said event.

 

We have no paid staff at Camp Valor Outdoors. All of our events are put together and hosted by volunteers. That means that 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to supporting our mission and our warriors.

 

Want to make a difference in the lives of ill, injured, and wounded warriors and their families? Become a part of Camp Valor Outdoors and help us honor those that have sacrificed so much for this great nation, and know that we are making a difference!!!
