This last weekend I had the honor and opportunity so get to go on a backpacking trip with Divide Camp. Divide Camp is located about 45 minutes outside Joseph, OR in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Their mission is ” Our mission is simple – to give back to those who have given so much for America… for us.” And that is exactly what they do.
We met up Friday in Joseph and got driven out the the camp. Glad for that my little Camry would have not made it. Once we were there holy was it amazing. 4 amazing cabins to sleep in, a lodge with shower, outdoor kitchen, firepit, gunrange, bow range and more being added. We met with our guide and a couple of the volunteers that were working on the camp. Then it was dinner time with some home made chili and cornbread. After that we prepped for the next day and our backpacking.
After breakfast we headed out the the trail head and got started. Words are hard for me to describe the fun, challenges and growth we had out there. I will put some of the pictures up on my facebook page. I saw someone push themselves over physical and emotional challenges.
If you are a veteran and looking for a great time outdoors look into Divide Camp. If you are looking for a great organization to support look into Divide Camp.
