Divide Camp Seeks Post 9-11 Combat Wounded Veteran Applicants

Divide Camp (dividecamp.org), a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to serving Post 9-11 combat
wounded veterans, is seeking applicants who would participate in wilderness activities in
Northeast Oregon.
 
Travel expenses and accommodations are provided to the veteran guests who visit the former elk hunting camp located in Wallowa County.
 
From this base camp, warriors can float pristine rivers which include whitewater rafting and fishing, or hiking and camping expeditions into the Eagle Cap Wilderness, or guided hunting trips on vast acreage offered by private landowners. Divide Camp serves veterans from Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
 
The solitude and beauty of the remote landscape into which Divide Camp is nestled, combined
with the camaraderie among participants, allow them to relax, often for the first time since returning from deployment. In expressing his gratitude to Director Julie Wheeler, a recent guest said, “Thank you for this opportunity. This gave me a chance to ‘re-boot.’ I found myself doing things I never thought I’d do again. This is so much better than talking to a therapist.”
 
By providing a wilderness adventure to those who attend, Divide Camp endeavors to “Honor Service and Build Hope” for combat service members. Veterans may apply with a “buddy” whom they served with to enhance this meaningful experience. With slots available this season through October 2015, interested candidates are encouraged to complete the application at
